Kaylee loves to go hiking and camping with her family in the mountains. But when test revealed she suffered from brain cancer, her family turned to St. Jude for care. In December 2014, Kaylee developed headaches and was often tired. When tests revealed she suffered from a brain tumor, her family was devastated. She underwent surgery to remove the tumor, which was identified as a medulloblastoma. At St. Jude, Kaylee’s treatment has included radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Kaylee’s family is grateful for everything St. Jude has provided for them. 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 amazes us,” her mother said. “She’s smiling every day. She keeps us going.”
