My Story

Over Memorial Day weekend, Kalea had experienced vomiting and headaches. After 14 days of worsening symptoms and multiple doctor visits, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. On June 11th, she had her brain tumor removed. The pathologists determined it was a grade 4 medulloblastoma tumor. On June 21st, her little brother, Noah, was also diagnosed with a medulloblastoma tumor. He had his tumor removed on June 25th. Kalea is currently undergoing radiation at CHLA.
