At the age of 10, Alyssa passed away from Leukemia complications after a long, brave six-and-a-half year battle with the disease. Despite facing crippling pain in her hands as a a side effect of her bone marrow transplant, Alyssa still chose to write, knowing she would "pay dearly for it later when her hands would cramp up and stiffen."
