Kaylee's fight against DIPG


4958466_1436383335.1177_funddescription.This page is setup for Kaylee.  Kaylee is a beautiful, energetic,free spirited, loving 7 year old girl. After having  continuous headaches over a short period of time, her mother cosulted her pediatrician which recommened to have test done. Their worst nightmare has just begun. No parent should have to go through this specially a life that is beginning to live.

     On June 12th the doctor diagnosed Kaylee with DIPG (Diffused Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). DIPG are highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumors found at the base of the brain.  DIPG affects the pons portion of the brainstem;rendering nervous system function impossible. Symptoms include double vision, inability to close the eyelids completely, dropping one side of the face, and difficulty chewing and swallowing and even breathing. Unfortunately these symptoms usually worsen rapidly because the tumor is rapidly growing. 

The only remedy at this point is radiation to shrink the tumor and lessens the headaches.  There is nothing else that can be done.  The doctors gave Kaylee the fatal diagnosis and discussed the survival rate of 0%.  We are praying for a miracle!

    We are asking for any donations to help with treatment cost that aren't covered by insurance, high cost of medication that is given at home, and all the other travel expenses that will be incurred during this devastating time.  Please help spread the word for prayers and donations any little bit helps and goes a long way.  We are desperately hoping for a miricle and know with God anything is possible!!!


Thank you and God Bless All.
