10 Year Old Meekah and her Brave Battle with Rare Cancer

Browns Bay, Auckland

Meekah, the most brave and positive 10-year-old you'll ever meet. She is currently facing a battle against Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that suddenly disrupted her life by manifesting as a large mass on her spinal cord, resulting in constant back pain, severe muscle stiffness/spacitiasy, along with a completely dropped foot with no sensation in her leg, drastically limiting her ability to walk, preventing her from doing her favorite activities like netball and dancing.

Despite enduring months of misdiagnosis and debilitating symptoms, Meekah approached her journey with unwavering strength, humour and a radiant smile. Following a grueling 9-hour surgery to remove the tumor, her resilience and positive mindset have allowed her to regain the ability to walk. However, her journey is far from over.

Meekah is gearing up for her third cycle of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, a tough road ahead lasting several weeks. In addition to her treatments, she underwent surgery to preserve an ovary, due to the potential impact treatment will have on her future fertility. Your support can make a world of difference ensuring Meekah receives the day-to-day care and assistance she needs to continue her courageous fight against cancer.

By donating, you're not just covering her day-to-day costs; you're offering invaluable support to Meekah and her family during this challenging time. Let's come together and rally behind Meekah, showing her that she's not alone in this fight

Update from Meekah’s Family   28 May 2024

Meekah has had a good past two weeks, eating well and she is a bit more active. Tomorrow she will start her third cycle of chemo and also begin her radiation therapy, a 6-week course, 5 days a week with weekends off. We're incredibly grateful for everyone's donations and love. Nikita will compile all your lovely messages into a scrapbook for Meekah so she can look at it when she needs a reminder of how much she is loved!

Thanks again x
