Rally Kid Kylee started showing worrying symptoms three days before her first birthday. Unable to see her bottle, her parents brought her to an eye doctor and later to her pediatrician. On her birthday, Kylee was diagnosed with a bilateral retinoblastoma in both her eyes, a rare cancer at its most dangerous stage. Kylee had her left eye removed then began intra-arterial chemotherapy for the other. Due to unforeseen complications and infections, Kylee’s right eye ended up being removed as well, rendering her legally blind before the age of two, and she is about to begin reconstruction surgery on her face. Even though she has a long tough road ahead of her, Her family calls her an inspiration, because despite everything she went through, she kept a smile on her face.
Every child who has been diagnosed with childhood cancer inspires us to Rally On to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures. Please join us in the fight against childhood cancer by making a donation or setting up your own Rally fundraiser today.
