Cancer warrior Arisa San Nicolas laid to rest

Posted: Updated:

Today, family and friends made their way to Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Yigo to bid adios to 6-year-old Arisa Ann San Nicolas. San Nicolas was a cancer warrior princess who inspired the island community with her strength and bravery.

Affectionately known as 'Cessa,' she was only 2 when she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. After completing treatment, she returned back to Guam to be with family but in February of this year, the cancer had returned.

Again, Arisa was 6 years old.
