This soon-to-be 10-year-old loves music and prior to her diagnosis of Osteosarcoma in the last year, she used to love to dance and sing. Sadly, her cancer battle has required a partial leg amputation and thus, she’s not been able to dance of late. Fatima is such a brave and strong young lady though and can’t wait to get her new prosthetic leg so she can resume dancing again. Fatima is currently being treated at Children’s Mercy Hospital and is excited to feel the love of Jayhawk Nation on June 9th at Lawrence Free State High School for the 14th annual, Rock Chalk Roundball Classic.
Jayhawk fans, meet the third member of our 2022 Roundball #StartingFive, the leading lady of this year’s Roundball Classic, Fatima Gomez of Olathe, KS.
