My Story

Kaylee is 5 years old and in March of 2011, she was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Neuroblastoma, a life-threatening childhood cancer. She began her treatment at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Ft. Worth, TX. She endured over a year of treatment and battled so bravely to achieve remission. She has just relapsed for a third time and is seeking  continuous treatment at CHKD in Norfolk, VA. as well as Memorial Sloan-Kettering in NY and Penn State Hershey Medical center in PA.  Her fight has been a long and arduous one.  Until now, she has shown that she can conquer cancer. But her fight is not over, and she will be going through many more extremely difficult treatments. Relapsed Neuroblastoma is among the most difficult of cancers to treat after relapse and the survivability is extremely rare. Kaylee has been nicknamed “Warrior Princess”. A true testament to her personality, and a name she certainly lives up to. Her journey has been a very long and arduous one, a journey that no parent ever wants to see their precious child go through. Words cannot express how heart wrenching it is for a family to endure the exhausting battle against Neuroblastoma. And although the ultimate outcome of this cancer is uncertain, she is definitely showing it who is boss.
