Childhood Cancer Awareness Month Honorees​

Yahir Sanchez Martinez

Mixed Germ Cell Tumor


Yahir was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer called MIXED GERM CELL TUMOR STAGE 4 HIGH RISK at 13 years old. He fought bravely for 8 months and endured many chemotherapy treatments, transplant, medications, new treatments that were submitted, radiation, and also received treatment in another state for a month. He was always a young man with strong faith, extreme joy, a positive attitude, and beautiful smile. He was happy, respectful, very friendly, polite, athletic and so many more things.

He taught us to always look forward, believing in God because He has greater plans for you.

Thanks to everyone at this foundation because your help for my son and for the whole family was a great blessing.

-Guadalupe Martinez, mother
