Mekki Beat Cancer. Now She Has a New Dream for Her Future

I remember when I woke up from a biopsy five years ago. My friends and family were all around me. Everyone was crying.

I learned that I had Ewing’s sarcoma on my left leg. That’s a rare cancer found in bone and soft tissue. Because of the people like you who support Children’s Mercy, I was able to have surgery and the chemotherapy I needed to stop the cancer from spreading.

I absolutely loved my doctors. But I really connected with my nurses. They changed the trajectory of my life. They inspired me so much, I decided to become a nurse.

I am going to help other kids like me!

You are helping too. Thank you in advance for being part of Dream Big Day and helping kids like me heal. You can never know how much it means to have such caring people behind you.

Every donation to Children’s Mercy makes a difference. When you rally support from your friends and family, know you’re doing something amazing for kids like me!

Gratefully yours,
