Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Honoree​

Sarai zavala

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)


Sarai had always been an active child. She loved playing outdoors, most especially running and doing flips. She was in 2nd grade when her parents started to notice some red flags.

Sarai started to be very tired and sleep a lot more than usual. She lost a lot of weight and within two weeks Sarai started to develop red spots on her body. These red spots were alarming to her mother because she had experienced those same red spots with her oldest daughter Genesis, who prior to Sarai’s diagnosis had already been diagnosed with cancer.

Sarai was her older sister’s life-saving bone marrow donor during her sisters cancer journey. Never would they have imagined they would be on the same journey with her just a few years later.

Sarai was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at 7 years old. She is receiving high dose chemotherapy and still needs a year and a half of treatment to go.

She is looking forward to the day when she can go back to school. She is expectant for the day when she has no more limitations and can be free to be herself again.
