Azul is a sweet, joyful, fun, and environmentally conscious 13-year-old girl. Azul is full of love, which she generously shares with people, animals, nature, and the earth. Azul’s favorite color is blue, she likes to paint and craft, and she is a huge Spider-Man/Marvel fan!
On June 18, 2021, after weeks of showing several signs that something wasn’t right, Azul was diagnosed with a type of cancer called acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Azul was quickly scheduled for surgery to install a port and then immediately began chemotherapy treatment at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Until recently, Azul has endured chemo treatments and procedures on a near-weekly basis. The side effects from chemo were harsh, including fevers, nausea, changes in taste and appetite, and hair loss…twice.
However, Azul is now in the final phase of her treatment, which includes taking daily chemo pills and once-a-month clinic visits. Azul is scheduled to be fully done with her 2+ year treatment plan in October of 2023! Through it all, Azul has continued to fight with the heart of a warrior and shine her beautiful light to our world.
Azul will be adopted as the first Sparrow to Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, AZ. Students will work hard to earn money for Azul through sponsored community service, giving her and her family the support they need to finish her treatment and declare victory!
