'Valorant' streamer Kyedae shares she's 'officially off chemotherapy' in latest health update

Kyedae, who became famous for her Valorant streaming sessions, is now officially off chemo. 

The content creator shared the good news during her livestream on Wednesday, Sept. 27. 

"I am officially off of chemotherapy now," she began. “My hair has started to grow back, My nails have been growing a little bit, too, and I’m so happy."

Kyedae, however, said she still has to undergo more procedures for her health. “It does not mean that all of my treatment is done yet, but for now, my hair has started to grow back. My nails have been growing a little bit, too, and I’m so happy," she added. 

The streamer revealed she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia—a cancer of the blood and bone marrow—in March. 

“I’ve recently been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (cancer). I’ll be starting up treatment very soon. With that being said I’m not too sure how my body will react to the treatment so I do apologize in advance if my stream schedule isn’t consistent! Stay safe,” she wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

According to the National Cancer Institute, it’s not clear what causes this disease, but doctors and experts have identified some possible risk factors, including exposure to radiation, smoking, previous diagnosis of blood disorders like myelodysplasia, and increasing age, among others.

Kyedae is a well-known gamer, streamer, and content creator in the e-sports community under the gaming organization 100 Thieves. She was recently recognized as the Best Valorant Streamer at this year’s Streamer Awards.  

She is engaged to professional Valorant player Tyson “TenZ” Ngo.
