Yemayah's Play House

Yemayah is a six-year-old cutie from Knightdale, NC. Yemayah battles a Medulloblastoma brain tumor and is treated at Duke Children’s Hospital. She has responded well to surgery and treatment and the prognosis is very good for her.

Before Yemayah was diagnosed, her father would take her and her sister on camping trips where they would stay in cabins. He had promised to build them their own cabin in the backyard so they could go camping at any time. Sadly, her father passed away due to diabetes complications before he could fulfill his promise.

Our friends at JLS Homes built a spectacular playhouse/cabin for Yemayah. She had named it the “Little Shack” and according to her mom, is in and out of there all day! We know Yemayah’s dad is looking down smiling, knowing that his little girl is happy!

Thank you for all you do to help our kids smile!
