My Story

Kinley was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia-hypodiploid 3 days after beginning the third grade in Sept. of 2011. She had come home from school with two lumps on her face that looked like swollen bug bites that became painful the following day so her mom took her to Children's Urgent Care where they learned the devastating news of her diagnosis. Kinley didn't go into remission after her first phase of chemo treatments so her doctors started a more aggressive treatment plan for her and determined she would need a bone marrow transplant right away. In January, 2012, Kinley underwent radiation and aggressive chemo to prepare for her bone marrow transplant which she received on January 19, 2012. The transplant was very hard on Kinley's body, shutting down several of her organs, causing her to need dialysis and causing her airway to swell so bad she needed to be placed on a ventilator. She was sent to ICU for 2 1/2 weeks until her transplant finally was successful and her body started healing. After a long 3 1/2 months in the hospital, Kinley was on her way to recovering! Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year.
