Their Fight is Our Fight

Almost 16,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year—and 20 percent of them will not survive. Despite major treatment advances over the past five decades, cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease for children under 14. Defeating this devastating disease is more urgent than ever, and it will take all of us to fuel the fight.

Meet Our Cancer Warriors

Cooper

Cooper was only 3 years old when she was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia in April 2020. A creative, imaginative little girl who loves to play make-believe, Cooper underwent chemotherapy at Phoenix Children’s throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. “Super Cooper,” as her parents call her, has inspired her family with her strength, resilience and wisdom. “I call her my bald-headed guru because I’ve learned so much from her,” says her dad.

Chase

As the COVID-19 pandemic reached Arizona in early 2020, Chase developed a persistent cough. The teenager was admitted to Phoenix Children’s, where he received an unexpected diagnosis: Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system. After undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment, he was declared free of cancer in September 2020. The following month, he competed in the AIA Division 1 Boys State Golf Championship, where he finished in the top 20.

Morgan

At age 7, Morgan was diagnosed with peripheral T-cell lymphoma, a rare form of cancer that is nearly always fatal. Her care team at Phoenix Children’s determined that an allogeneic bone marrow transplant, a procedure in which a patient receives healthy stem cells from a donor, would give her the best odds for survival. Now 9 years old, Morgan celebrated the two-year anniversary of her transplant in July 2021.
