Hope, Strength, and Healing for families coping with a child cancer diagnosis

Shyann ~ In Loving Memory

In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we remember Keaton Kiddo Shyann, a beautiful young warrior who fought a strenuous three year battle against Ewing’s Sarcoma, a cancer that affects bones and soft tissue. Shyann began her journey on May 24th, 2018. A bright young girl, she enjoyed movies, makeup, and clothes. From the start of her journey, Shyann was supported by her mom, dad, twin sister and younger siblings. She also found comfort in connecting with another Keaton kiddo who not only provided emotional support, but also formed an everlasting bond and friendship.

Keaton’s was fortunate enough to be a part of Shyann’s journey by sharing a family Hope Chest, meeting her family at our family events and supplying financial support as she endured treatment, in order to alleviate as much stress as possible. Surrounded by love, Shyann gained her angel wings on July 17th, 2021. Although words cannot express how deeply saddened we are, we celebrate Shyann’s life and legacy, honoring her journey.

Eventually, she developed little spots on her hands and unexplained bruises on her body, which the doctors deemed Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), but after seeing an informative TikTok video on the symptoms Ellora was experiencing, her mom’s gut told her it was something more than a bleeding disorder.
