Meet Noah

Noah Primary Childrens 41

Noah was living a ‘normal childhood’ life in Utah, thriving in school and following his passion of playing football. Then, suddenly in February of 2021 the game changed –both literally and figuratively. After dealing with ongoing migraines and multiple doctor visits, an in-depths scan revealed a mass in the center of his brain.

Noah was diagnosed with cancer and rushed to Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. “The words that you have cancer are the scariest thing that could possibly happen to you,” Noah said. “But as you progress in treatment, you learn so much and see what kids have been going through for a long time. When you come out of it, it is the biggest achievement you have made.”

Noah went through four operations and chemotherapy during his fight with cancer, spending countless hours in the hospital. He would escape his reality, even if just for a moment, by tossing the football around the halls of the hospital. After a long eight months of fighting, Noah got to ring his victory bell.

Now the 11-year-old is in remission and enjoying playing quarterback in tackle football. Noah likes to share his story in hopes it can inspire others. “Champions are made in the fourth quarter,” he says. Which means no matter the odds or the time on the clock, you must always fight; you must never quit.
