“Hi! My name is MIA-LEE (A.K.A. WARRIOR PRINCESS). I was 17 months old when I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma on 7 October 2020. This is a type of childhood cancer that attacks the nervous system and can develop into other forms of cancer too. A bit of a tricky one, I know. This was also the day when it felt like our worlds has fallen apart and nothing will ever be the same for me and my family. Let me tell you a little more about my journey…
On 8 October 2020 I had my 1st operation as I was basically paralyzed and couldn’t stand or walk anymore. The tumor that is growing inside of my little body measured the size of a cold-drink can and is situated behind my heart, wrapped around the aorta, compressing my lungs and left kidney. It is huge for such a petite little person! After spending 5 nights in ICU all by myself, I was transferred to Wits Donald Gordon Hospital which I believe have become my new home for quite some time. This is where it all started… It was on the 19th October when I received the first round of chemo. After the 4th cycle, a CT scan determined that the chemo had a poor response and the protocol was then changed. A lot has happened in-between chemo rounds. I became tired and ill, lost my appetite, my beautiful strawberry-blonde locks and a lot of weight. Fluid was building up inside my lungs which blocked my airways and I was in ICU twice in a critical condition.
The second time, I contracted sepsis due to the drain that was inserted between my ribs. Things didn’t look good for me and my family was praying non-stop for my recovery. This was also the time in my life when I was introduced to the Bible and who Jesus is. He lives inside of my heart now, and if Jesus didn’t know who MIA-LEE was before, He sure know’s now.
I am a girl with purpose in life and on 1 January 2021, I have taken my first steps for the second time and doing really well.
I have decided that nothing will get me down. My journey is still not over and I have many battles that I will still need to fight. I want to tell you something today and remember these words… “GOD WILL BRING NOTHING ON YOUR WAY THAT YOU AREN`T STRONG ENOUGH TO HANDLE.”
Thank you for supporting my journey.”
