Journal entry by Steve Amoils

Hi everyone,

Last week Maya completed her 33rd round of chemo, with no fuss or drama! Her current regimen involves using 2 harsh drugs. She gets these almost every Friday - with every 3rd Friday off. Despite side effects that would put most people in bed for a week, Maya has continued to rally, exercise daily and remain fully engaged in her life. As you know, LA has experienced a COVID surge, so she is being very cautious to remain socially distant, which for Maya has been very hard - as she is such a people person. 

At the end of December, Maya started in a new role at YouTube on the Health Partnerships team ( Specifically, she is focusing on mental health and is loving the job and her new teammates! 

Wishing everyone the best of health this year! Thank you for your continued support!

With love from the entire Amoils family,


Sandi and Steve
