Kiyah has always been interested in the outdoors and survival. Kiyah is a brown belt in Karate and Aikido. She was working on her 2nd-degree brown belt when she got sick.
Three months ago, Kiyah was having trouble with stamina in karate class. She would get sick in class and couldn’t do the jumps. Then she got what her family thought was the stomach flu. After four days of being sick and dehydrated, she was taken to the ER. Kiyah was diagnosed with leukemia and everything changed for her family in that second. Kiyah was in the hospital for forty-seven days as she started chemotherapy and had additional testing. Kiyah’s treatment will continue for two and one-half years.
