Help us help kids like Mariqza. Mariqza is a beautiful 12-year old girl from Olathe, Kansas. Her favorite food is enchiladas and she loves anything purple.
In 2013, Mariqza and her family were delivered some heart-breaking news. She was diagnosed with two different types of cancer. The first, Germinoma, affects the pituitary gland in her head. The pituitary gland lies at the base of the brain and contains a number of specialized cells. The gland functions to secrete hormones to trigger biological responses in tissues. This type of tumor contains cells that resemble immature stem cells and is typically aggressive and invasive. The second is called Chordoma and is located in her skull. Chordoma is a rare cancerous bone tumor that most often occurs along the spine or the base of the skull. In June of 2013, Mariqza began chemotherapy treatments. She receives all of her treatment at KU Medical Center.
