My Story

When Kylee was seven years old she watched as her Dad and his friends shaved their heads to help children like her who were battling childhood cancer. After she watched them all shave, Kylee declared that she would be shaving at the St. Baldrick’s event the following year. But sadly, Kylee passed away before she could. On August 26th 2008 Kylee lost her battle. But we continue to fight in her honor. Kylee never wanted another child to have to go through what she went through. This is how “Kylee’s Wish” was started, with a promise from a Father to his Daughter. Kylee’s twin brother Kasey shaves every year in honor of Kylee, since she could not be here to do it herself. You are our HERO Kylee!
