Updates on Makayla Noble

Thursday, Oct. 7

Makayla Noble, a varsity cheerleader, suffered a spinal cord accident Monday, Sept. 20. On Thursday, Oct. 7, @makaylasfightofficial posted on Instagram that Noble’s “spirits were up and (there were) lots of smiles today.”

“Mak passed her Swallow Study which means she is one step closer to eating on her own,” Makayla’s Fight Official said in their social media post. “She got to start with ice chips today and was very excited about that.”

They also said that Noble is medically ready to move to the rehabilitation facility.

“Medically speaking, everything is where it needs to be for Mak to move to the rehab facility,” they said. “This is still being decided, thank you for all the suggestions. We have done our research and have it from here. We are making the best decision for Makayla and our family.”

Noble will turn 17-years-old on Oct. 13. Community members can send birthday cards to her at: 8811 Eldorado Pkwy, #4115 Frisco, Texas 75033.

“Praises and special shout out to all the ICU nurses, physical therapists and Dr. Sixta at Medical City Plano,” Makayla’s Fight Official said. “We cannot thank them enough for the care they have given Makayla. We also want to specifically thank each and every one of you who have sent cards, notes and gifts. Each one gets read and shown to Mak and it brightens her day.
