On April 1, 2011, it was official: 2 ½-year-old Malia Dakota Jusczyk’s carefree life of Disney World and pony rides, soccer practice and swimming pools, came to a grinding halt. A CT scan revealed that Malia’s recent “tummy aches” were caused by a large tumor lodged in her abdomen. The solid mass wrapped around major blood vessels and pushed against her kidney and aorta. A biopsy confirmed that Malia has a very aggressive childhood cancer known as stage IV (high risk) neuroblastoma. The cancer had metastasized into her bones and bone marrow (cranium, humerus, and femur).
Malia’s Foundation participates in many events to raise funds and raise awareness to neuroblastoma. Her organization started the Malia Crushes Cancer Fund to raising money to help families facing neuroblastoma and to help research a cure.
Throughout the year Malia’s foundation participates and host different events, around the united states, to raise awareness and funding to continue fighting for the cure on cancer. If you want to participate or volunteer at any one of the the events they host, you can find out more information on their website.
