In April 2016, Diana got dressed up to celebrate her long-awaited quinceañera. But for Diana and her family, this moment went beyond the festivities. Just a year before, Diana’s future was uncertain after her family received devastating news.
When Diana was 14 years old, her parents noticed she was sleeping more than usual. “It really surprised us, because Diana’s always been a very active girl,” said her mother, Nidia. Just weeks later, tests in their home country of Honduras revealed Diana suffered from acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
