Zya's Shopping Spree

Zya is a 12-year-old young lady from Roanoke, VA being treated at Duke Children’s Hospital for Hodgkin’s Disease. Prior to her diagnosis, Zya loved playing sports including volleyball. After several months of active treatment, she is now needing a stem cell treatment leaving her isolated in the bone marrow unit at Duke.

Zya's Shopping Spree

Zya also loves fashion and wanted to go on a shopping spree. Because she could not leave the hospital, Meg’s Smile Foundation brought the shopping spree to her, providing an “online” shopping spree from her hospital room. She received gift cards to several of her favorite stores including Forever 21, Urban Outfitters and Zumiez. She also received a Visa gift card to use how she sees fit. This shopping spree is exactly what Zya needed to lift her spirits.

Thank you for all you do to help kids smile!
