Alayna likes animals, her family and friends and dancing. 
 
Alayna was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) after having a fever for a few consecutive days.  She spent two years receiving chemotherapy but was always positive and upbeat. She is now 5 years off treatment and is doing well!
 
Emily, Alyana’s older sister, considers her a hero because she fought cancer and was able to survive. Emily advises other families to never give up. She hopes that, “Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation will raise a lot of money to find a cure for childhood cancer.”
