Meet Zahra

Zahra is a playful girl whose bright blue eyes and energetic smile bring joy to everyone around her. She adores the color pink, and loves to sit with her mom, while they read books and draw together. But Zahra and her family are extraordinary fighters. At just two and a half years old, Zahra has persevered through more challenges than most of us face in a lifetime. Even through her toughest chemotherapy treatments, Zahra demonstrated strength and courage every day. It is not unusual to see her giggling and smiling. Her contagious laughter even transfers to her doctors and nurses. And her bravery is an inspiration to us all at CCCL. Because of the research being completed at CCCL, we have led the way to a cancer cure rate higher than 80 percent, making it possible to cure cancers like Zahra’s retinoblastoma. We will not stop until the world is cancer free for our children, so that kids like Zahra can have the gift of childhood they deserve.
