meet the kids

Maya Chernichan 

Birthdate: June 20
Diagnosed Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in August 1, 2018

Meet Maya! She was diagnosed with ALL in August 1, 2018 after months of fevers and 2 significant bacterial infections requiring hospitalizations. Our world was turned upside down when we got the phone call hours after a bone marrow biopsy saying that she had a form of childhood cancer. It took months for us to say the “C” word out loud. It’s every parents worst nightmare. We were introduced to The Team Brody Foundation immediately by another Team Brody family. They were a Godsend. When we met, it was like we’ve known them for years. They are doing an amazing job keeping Brody’s legacy alive by supporting other families going through this difficult journey. Our kids (Maya and her older sister Brielle, 5 years old) were showered with gifts and felt so special. The financial support they offer for parents who are unable to work while their child is in treatment is amazing and so generous. They have supported us in any way possible and are always there for us when we need them. Maya has remained resilient throughout it all. Her attitude and perseverance is admirable. She is anticipated to finish treatment this October (2020)


This is Bentley he was 4 years-old turning 5 in a few days when we got the news he had acute myeloid leukaemia. My whole world was turned upside down and we went through the waves of cancer . He stayed in hospital for 6 months and was very sick, that's when I was introduced to the Team Brody Foundation by tiffany when she noticed I never had anything to eat or had any visitors. I fell in love with this amazing family and became very close to them. Benny is very into super Mario and YouTube sensation Ryan's world .Benny was always a very happy and energetic kid once he got deep into treatment he started to get very depressed and weak it was very hard to see him like that I did everything I could to make him smile.
