Baby Syrianna is always happy, playful and smiling. She is a beautiful little girl who lights up the room when she dances to music and tries to walk. Syrianna continues to smile even though at the young age of three months old, she was diagnosed with Optic Glioma.

When Syrianna was just one month old, her mother noticed that her eyes were constantly shaking. After taking her to the pediatrician, they were sent to a Neurologist at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. They ordered all kinds of tests on Syrianna but it was the MRI that showed a tumor in the back of her eyes. In July of 2016, she was diagnosed with Optic Glioma. She began treatment right away which consists of weekly chemotherapy and MRI’s every three months. Her next MRI is on February 8th and we are hopeful that the tumor continues to shrink. Her mother wishes for her baby to grow physically, mentally and emotionally. Syrianna is so brave and an inspiration to us all!
