PostHeaderIcon ‘Lion King’ child Star Battling Cancer – Shannon Tavarez

Child star Shannon Tavarez, who played young Nala in the Broadway version of The Lion King, is battling cancer at the age of 11.

The young actress was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia in April this year. Tavarez was performing when the symptoms first hit, according to theatre news website BroadwayWorld.

“When I found out, it hit me really hard, like someone was throwing a ball at me. It was shocking and I thought, why me?” said Tavarez.

She is now a patient at Schneider Children’s Hospital in Long Island, where she receives daily chemotherapy treatments while awaiting a bone marrow transplant.

Tavarez had a promising Broadway career and was performing four shows a week in The Lion King, until she was diagnosed with the deadly disease.
