Tynece is a shy 10-year-old, 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 Tynece is currently undergoing chemotherapy.

Her family hopes she will get through this with no problems and they can be an inspiration and help other families going through their own difficult times. She is the youngest child and this year 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!

Kensley Tobiason
Kensley is a little girl who truly shines. But it was a dark day when doctors discovered she had a rare form of leukemia: CML. Now, she is taking chemo every day, monitoring her white blood cell count and having bone marrow tests every three months.
Maddie was a happy little toddler able to light up any room. She was diagnosed with atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT), but that didn't keep her from dancing and smiling. Unfortunately, Maddie passed away, but her story is not over.
