Restore To Kaylee What Cancer Took Away

Imagine being a 12 year old girl. All of the natural insecurities and transformative changes going on in your life at that time can be disconcerting.  Life is challenging enough for a child of this tender age.  But for Kaylee Kalvig, being 12 years old is much more difficult. Kaylee's mother, Linda Kalvig, passed away on February 25th, 2013 after a courageous but horrific battle with lung cancer that eventually spread to her brain leaving an emotional void that can never be filled. On top of the emotional strain of losing her mom, Kaylee also must now face the majority of her life without any financial assistance from her parents.  
With her mother now just a blessed memory, and her father uninvolved in her life for many years, Kaylee desperately needs ongoing financial help.  Her sister and brother, Jessica and Christopher respectively, have set up this fund to help offset the future costs that Kaylee will incur including but not limited to college. They are both in their very early twenties, putting themselves through college, and working. Please consider a donation to help restore some normalcy to Kaylee's recent tumultuous life. No amount is too small and every single dollar is so greatly appreciated. When you close your eyes to sleep this evening, know that you have aided in helping this ailing family rebuild their life, and take great comfort in that notion.
