Hello! Welcome to my website! My name is Maya Collins. I am 12 years old and I have been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). I had a bone marrow transplant on September 1st, 2011 and my cancer went into remission but we found out in May 2012 that I had relapsed. I had my second bone marrow transplant on August 3, 2012. All was wonderful for 4 years! I went back to dance classes, horseback riding and made straight A's in school! I was able to enjoy life to the fullest until the end of June 2016 when unfortunately we discovered that I had relapsed again. So, I enter the battle for a 3rd time, but I'm strong and fully recovered from my treatments 4 years ago so I'm ready to kick cancer to the curb once and for all! Please follow my journey. It's going to be a long, hard road, but with the love, prayers and support of my family and friends I know I can do it!
We are currently at St. Jude in Memphis while she is recovering from her 3rd bone marrow transplant. Here is our mailing address:
