Honor our Rally Kids and Support a Rally Kid Research Fund

Create your own Rally Kid Research Fund

Many of our Rally Kid families have created Rally Kid Research Funds in honor of their incredible Rally Kids. These funds eliminate the need to create your own foundation or charity and enable you to support the cause close to your heart. Through these individual funds, you can also Rally your friends and family to do the same!

Ava always told her family that she loves everybody, even people she does not know. Ava’s strength and resolve were amazing during her fight with cancer.

Just before her third birthday in 2015, scans revealed that Brecklynn had cancer all over her little body. Her main tumor was in her left lung, two in her brain, two in her spine, one in her arm and one in her leg. Three days into the journey, she went into major brain surgery to remove the two brain tumors. A few days after, on Thanksgiving day, she began her first round of chemo. Since then she has been through 10 rounds of chemo, two major lung surgeries to remove the tumors, 20 rounds of whole brain radiation and many other procedures. She relapsed in February 2017 and is currently fighting cancer yet again. Her road is a long one with no real certainties on what is next. Her case is extremely rare, with less than 40 cases of PPB spreading have been documented. Her strength is awe inspiring. She is truly an inspiration and just loves living life. She is a different princess daily and loves dressing up with her little sister.

Carson was an active healthy child who loved playing sports, especially baseball. After experiencing some headaches and double vision, his parents took him to several doctors. On June 24, 2016, the doctors found a tumor in Carson’s brain stem. He was diagnosed with Diffused Intrisic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). Carson completed radiation at St. Jude and went on to do further treatment in California. After an 8 month courageous fight, Carson passed away on March 1, 2017. This beautiful angel will never be forgotten.

Grace was an energetic, fun and caring young lady. To know Grace was to love her! She always had a positive attitude, and she would lend a helping hand whenever she could. She also loved to swim. In 2017, she swam a mile for Swim Across America. She beat one of her doctors by five minutes. She fought cancer fiercely and bravely, but after her third battle with cancer, she passed away in March 2018. Grace’s loving, faith-driven spirit will live in our hearts forever.

Jacob is beating blood cancer. He loves to read books, play the piano and bells, listen to music, going to theme parks and participating in baseball. His mom’s involvement in children’s healthcare and educational reform has led Jacob to be one of Georgia’s most visible advocates for these issues. He enjoys spending time with his parents and younger brother, Jared. Jacob’s hope and dream is that society will see him for his abilities and not his disabilities.

Jordan has beaten blood cancer twice. He is a kid that always loves to smile. He loves life, his dogs and is a student at Auburn University. Jordan realizes that there is a major need for funding and research for all childhood cancers, research for which is widely underfunded compared to adult cancers. He now fully understands when people say, “It wasn’t your time,” because honestly, it just wasn’t. He has dedicated his life to fight with every fiber of his being to get funding for childhood cancers. For better treatments that aren’t so harsh. Treatments that have fewer long-term side effects. 
rkr-kylie
Rally Kid Kylie, or “Smiley Kylie”, had the most infectious smile and a talent on the stage unlike any other. Before she passed away in February 2015, Kylie told her family that “Cancer should die, not the kids”, and challenged them to keep raising funds and awareness for childhood cancer.

Ryder is awesome, a bit quiet but sometimes sassy and always sweet! She was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 18 months and went through surgery and chemo. When she was in third grade, she had the upper portion of her left lung removed due to side effects from chemo and until sixth grade, was on oxygen 24/7. She also had a feeding tube for seven years. She hasn’t let any of this slow her down at all. She has tried all sorts of sports from soccer to golf and was on the golf team last year! She is a rock star and lives life with such passion and energy and inspires everyone around her!

Sean had cancer four times. He endured chemo, radiation, a Bone Marrow Transplant, and a craniotomy. Throughout this journey, he suffered greatly, but the worst thing about being sick was that he made friends with so many kids who did not make it. He has made it his mission to raise money for pediatric cancer research.
