TEEN SPOTLIGHT 

Mikah

Nickname: Meeks

Favourite colour: Lavender purple

Favourite trip: Disney and Japan

Favourite thing to do: Drawing things I love and talking with friends

Favourite movie or book: Aladdin (1996) 

Special skill/hidden talent: Piano and art, but a hidden talent is designing

Something about their cancer journey: While undergoing harsh cancer treatments, Mikah is also experiencing the rarest of side effects — nerve and muscle weakness and brain swelling. Unable to walk, talk and even swallow, Mikah has endured long periods of recovery and rehabilitation. Now she is even joining the online PEER program from the hospital room.

What I would like to tell someone going through treatment: It may seem impossible at times, but you must stay positive!  Keep doing things that make you happy, and talk to people you love every day. It makes the biggest difference :)
