Tyquencia finally got the baby girl she was praying for when NaNa came along. NaNa has four brothers, and her favorite is “Fat Fat,” who is actually quite skinny.
She missed him the most while she was being treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for acute myeloid leukemia, an aggressive blood cancer.
In October 2016, NaNa started refusing food and was losing a significant amount of weight. A visit to a nearby hospital showed she had leukemia at just a year old. She was quickly referred to St. Jude.
