AGE 11

Children's Hospital Colorado patient

Shortly after she turned 3, Lillian started struggling with unexplained fatigue, diarrhea, headaches and vomiting. By her fourth birthday, she had lost nearly a fourth of her body weight. After a year without answers, a blood test finally revealed that Lillian had celiac disease, a genetic autoimmune condition that damages the small intestines. Lillian was referred to Children’s Colorado, where she started getting the care she needed. After maintaining a strict gluten-free lifestyle, Lillian’s disease has now been in remission for two years.

Sophia was just 3 years old when she was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor known as craniopharyngioma. Sophia and her family traveled from their home in New Mexico to Children’s Colorado and lived in the area for five months while Sophia underwent intensive treatment. The cancer dramatically impacted her vision, but after surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, the tumor is mostly gone. Today, Sophia is a spunky, joyful little girl who recently started kindergarten. She loves to sing and dreams of someday being on “American Idol”.

At age 4, Tom was diagnosed with leukemia. His military family was stationed in England at the time. After being treated abroad for several months, the family was transferred to Colorado Springs, so Tom could be treated at Children’s Colorado. In 2016, after more than three years of chemotherapy and other treatments, Tom’s cancer was finally in remission. Today, he loves playing with Legos® and when he grows up, this gregarious little boy wants to be an adventurer and explorer.

MAYA

AGE 11

Children's Hospital Colorado patient

Maya is truly one-of-a-kind. She has an extremely rare blood disorder, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), that causes her blood cells to attack other healthy blood cells, even striking her spleen, lungs and brain. Maya’s specific form of HLH – and the way it affects her body – is so rare that there is no other case in the world quite like hers. In 2016, she underwent a bone marrow transplant with her sister, Marley, as her donor. Maya copes with her illness by maintaining a positive attitude and always bringing her trusty sidekick, a stuffed monkey named Dave, along to her numerous hospital stays.

Nate has undergone two major surgeries for his heart and spine. He is proud of his surgical scars and hopes his story will inspire other kids. A social butterfly, Nate’s family nicknamed him the “Little Mayor,” because he loves talking to everyone. He likes Legos®, soccer and making his sister laugh.
