Tynece is a shy girl, but speaks her mind when needed. She lives with her family and wants nothing more than to be able to spend time with her mom, dad and two sisters. She likes to dance and color and loves anything that has to do with Minnie Mouse.

Tynece complained of pain in the back of her neck for a couple months. As time passed, she was sleeping and getting sick a lot. After having her checked by a fourth doctor, it was determined that she had a tumor the size of a golf ball. She was in surgery within three days and after that she was diagnosed with stage IV medulloblastoma. She had radiation treatment and underwent chemotherapy. Today, Tynece is two years cancer-free! Although she still feels the effects of cancer, she is living life to the fullest. 

Her family hopes they can be an inspiration and help other families going through their own difficult times. Tynece maybe the youngest child in her family, but she has taught her mother, Chiniqua, the real meaning of strength. It gives Chiniqua hope that there are other people that feel the same way as her about childhood cancer, and she wants others to have hope and believe!
