The Fight Against Brain Tumors
Over the past couple of years, Lyric has won over more than just a few celebrities. Her publicized and documented fight against cancer turned her into a social media celebrity and generated hundreds of thousands of supporters.
Born as Yhung Lyric Chanel, the young girl was only 11 when she was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer called anaplastic ependymoma. Over the years, she documented her fight against brain tumors and garnered over 470,000 followers on social media. Chanel grew up in Houston with her family and her mother, Monica Valentine, was one of her biggest support systems. By the time she was taken to the doctors, cancer had developed to stage 3 – its highest stage. (Meaww)
