The 2017 Childhood Cancer Survivor Award will be presented to Magana. In early 2016, he was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma, cancer of the eye. Immediately after diagnosis, he underwent intensive chemotherapy which led him to eventually lose his right eye. Fortunately, Magana was very responsive to treatment and is now in a maintenance regimen). He will continue to have monthly out-of-state check-ups to monitor his progress. Magana has shown tremendous resilience and will not let cancer get in his way. He loves to play with his siblings, action figures and art.
