Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
Kailee was diagnosed after finding an orange size tumor in her armpit. After several surgeries, treatment began within a month of finding the tumor. She has completed 42 weeks of chemotherapy and five weeks of radiation. As of now, scans show no change! There is one spot the doctor's are watching, but they believe it is scar tissue from surgery to remove the tumor. In December 2014, Kailee had her port removed! We continue to pray for clear scans.
In April 2015, after complaining of leg pain, we discovered Kailee's cancer had returned in her pelvis, with small spots on her lungs and kidneys, as well as disease in her bone marrow.  After enduring more treatment, she was able to complete chemo in August of 2016.  Scans in November showed no signs of disease.  Sadly, in January 2017, the cancer had returned.  She is currently undergoing intense chemotherapy in hopes to knock this cancer out a third and final time.
