Meet the 2019 Honored Hero, Ayanna Singleton!

Ayanna “YaYa” Singleton is a 17- year old senior at Bay High School in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. In January of this year, Ayanna was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin T-Cell Lymphoma.  Ayanna became known as “YaYa” when she began playing soccer with her high school team, as a 7th grader.   Ayanna was in 7th grade playing varsity soccer with high school students.  As the smallest and one of the fiercest players, on the field, the fans began calling her “YaYa” and the name stuck.   In January “YaYa” was in the middle of her Junior year in high school and her soccer season when she began feeling tired, but not just tired.  She was severely fatigued.  A trip to the doctor confirmed that her lymph nodes were swollen and that, coupled with her fatigue, was certainly cause for concern.  After some preliminary tests were conducted, her mother Kristi was advised to take Ayanna to Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. Without hesitation, Kristi took her there; the drive is about 75 miles one way. 

Once there, the doctors began conducting tests.  One test after another.  Waiting and wondering.  Praying and waiting.  Finally, they were given the diagnosis.  T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  Not what any of us wanted to hear.  But, “YaYa” is a fighter, a champion and true to her very nature, she said, “I’m not scared of cancer.  Cancer better be scared of me!”  She’s been fighting like a winner ever since.  Always a diligent honor roll student, she continued her school work and maintained her honor roll status throughout the past semester in spite of the grueling cycle of chemotherapy.  Treatments were usually 3 times a week, every other week.  After graduation in May of 2019, Ayanna wants to pursue a degree in the medical field becoming a nurse practitioner.
