In the summer of 2020, photos posted to social media by Sariyah’s mom showed, at certain angles, a glow resembling a full moon in the child’s eye.  She soon learned Sariyah had cancerous tumors in both eyes at the age of 18 months.

Her family was referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Sariyah’s parents have had to witness their baby undergoing intensive chemotherapy, eye injections, laser therapy and cryotherapy.

The moment we walked in, I felt comfort.

I can’t help but feel peace.

Families, like Sariyah's, will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.


Sariyah continues to receive treatment at St. Jude, and her parents continue to have trust and faith in Sariyah’s care team.
