In December 2014, tests revealed Kaylee suffered from a brain tumor called medulloblastoma. After surgery to remove the tumor, Kaylee’s family turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, where her treatment included radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
“Kaylee amazes us,” her mother said. “She’s smiling every day. She keeps us going.”
Runners who fundraise for St. Jude while training for their race are called St. Jude Heroes, and they’re helping kids, like Kaylee. The funds raised by Heroes help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Kaylee is artistic and loves to go hiking and camping with her family in the mountains. Kaylee is now finished with treatment and visits St. Jude for regular scans.Run for St. Jude
