Our name is Kandice and Augustine Vigil and we are here asking for your love, encouragement, prayers and support, for out beloved first born, Khloe Addyson Vigil.
This past Easter weekend, our daughter was hospitalized after her teachers observed strange behaviors with Khloe's eyes. After receiving blood work, MRIs, and a biopsy, on April 24, 2019, our family was hit with the news that our precious child has STAGE 4 Neuroblastoma. The cancer has already spread through her bone marrow, a tumor in her skull as well as a tumor in her abdomen. She will have to undergo chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
Khloe was born prematurely, at 26 weeks, weighing only 2lbs and causing her to have to remain in the hospital for 4 months before she could come home. Through the past 6 years of her life, Our Little Fighter has undergone several surgeries, having a tracheotomy and feeding tube for half of her life, and many hospital visits for care and treatments. DESPITE IT ALL, KHLOE CAME OUT ON TOP!!!
As we pray, and wrap ourselves in love, hope and God's mercy, we are praying that she will overcome this obstacle as well.
The strength that is contained within this small 6 year old frame is what is allowing us to be positive. Khloe has remained happy, joyful, feisty, bright and most importantly, loving since the news has hit. She has continued to be an amazing big sister and her positivity has kept the family grounded during this time.
We are asking all Friends, Family, and anyone who is willing to help us raise $10,000 for financial support, to help cover bills, expenses and travel from Barstow to Loma Linda's Oncology Center as we FIGHT, (AND WE MEAN, FIGHT HARD) to land on the other side of this situation. This is an urgent matter because it will take a major toll on our family, as for we will have to miss work in order to make it too and from the hospital as she needs it. Our small town does not have the treatment facilities to support her prognosis.
If you cannot help financially, please keep Khloe in your thoughts, prayers, positive energy and love! Thank you all!
