Cherokee was first diagnosed with a malignant tumour in her central nervous system. Since then further tumours have been found in her abdomen and brain. The tumour in her brain is inoperable. Cherokee also has no pituitary gland function which affects her growth and means she gets very tired.
Cherokee has three older siblings, brothers Kingston and Bronson, and sister Cheyenne.
Cure Kids is funding ground-breaking research into a vaccine for brain tumours. Although this vaccine may not be available in time for Cherokee, it gives her family hope that other children may not have to go through what Cherokee and her family have faced.
Cherokee enjoys kicking back with her younger brother Cuba-Lennox, and watching DVDs.
