Rylie is a creative and enthusiastic six year old girl. She loves crafting, going to school and playing with her friends. She was diagnosed with ALL Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on June 17, 2009. The last eight months have been difficult for everyone. I am thrilled to say that she entered the Maintenance phase of her treatment in January. She will continue her treatment until August 2011, but can now start to return to a more "normal" lifestyle.
Rylie has an amazing spirit. It has been her courage and strength that has gotten all of us through this time. She is grateful for all of the support that her friends, family and community have provided and for the amazing doctors and nurses at Connecticut Children's Medical Center.
Rylie embraced her hair-loss. She is happy that her beautiful red hair is growing back, but believes that BALD is BEAUTIFUL! We support Paul Sullivan and the St. Baldrick's foundation and their efforts to support childhood cancer research.
