eyeRemember: Shannon Tavarez

At just 11 years-old, 'Lion King' Broadway star, Shannon Tavarez loss her battle to leukemia. The young fighter played the role of Young Nala, and succumbed to the disease after a umbilical cord transplant she had at the end of the summer. Many celebs, including Beyonce and Alicia Keys rallied support for her. Unfortunately, a bone marrow match could not be found.

Our hearts go out to her family, as a few of us from Team elleELLEeye know what it is like to know someone who passed from this disease, is still dealing with it, or know someone who has died young as a result of a terminal illness.
