My Story

On March 18th 1996 our first daughter Kayleigh was born. At the age of 2, Kayleigh became ill and our lives changed forever. After being diagnosed with stage 3 Neuroblastoma we began our long journey of a parent’s worst nightmare. After multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, pain, and tears we walked away from hospitals with Kayleigh in remission and began to live our lives where we “left off”. Kayleigh had sparkly eyes of blue, the sweetest voice, and a smile that lit up the entire room. Her favorite things were bike riding, kittens, her stuffed animal “Mr. Clown”, Winnie the Pooh, and parties! At the age of 7 she complained of pain, and we learned her cancer was back and had spread through out her little body. We were devastated, helpless, and had few options. After watching her suffer thru harsh chemo, and getting no results, we went home on Hospice to make her comfortable. On November 24th 2003 Kayleigh received her Angel Wings.
