Karalyn Kilgore

$11,855 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 80 people in 9 months
Created September 14, 2018
Fundraising team
on behalf of Jennifer Kilgore
This GoFundMe has been set up to support the Kilgore family, and to ease some of their financial burden. Her Dad Keith is the sole provider for the family, and with our help, her mom Jennifer,  and her dad will be able to be by Karalyn's side through her brave fight.  As most of you know, 10 year old Karalyn, a/k/a "Bebe" was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Karalyn's Aunt described this sweet Angel so perfectly, "She's quiet and a little shy, but she loves big and is practically a genius. She dances beautifully and can kill it on the soccer field." Sweet Karalyn will begin a journey that no 10 year old should ever have to fight, but she is not alone in this fight, her faith is strong and she knows that when trouble comes God will care for her. Please continue to pray for Karalyn and the Kilgore family. She is unsure what she will be facing in the coming days, but we will continue to update you on her progress on her facebook page: " www.facebook.karalynstrong ". Thank you for your support.

Relay for Life has always been near and dear to us because of the impact cancer has had on our family. This year, Karalyn was invited to be a youth spotlight at the event held on May 3, 2019 at George Walton Academy. We would love for everyone to come join us for this awesome event and support Karalyn and the many other fighters, survivors, and family members of those we honor!

It's been an awesome morning! Karalyn was surprised by the Pink Heals fire truck, their team, and the Walton Co fire department, plus several of her friends!! Her name is now officially part of their truck along with hundreds of other names! What an amazing experience this was! We are so thankful for their love and support and their mission! Thank you Bobbie for setting this up for her! Lots of tears were shed, especially watching her add her name to the truck! Thank you to all of the Pink Heals team and Walton Co for coming to make our girl feel special!!

GOAL:
Thank you everyone who has shared this GoFundme and donated! If you haven’t donated yet, please consider donating $5 - $10, or whatever you can to get us closer to our goal. Even if you have already donated, please consider donating again. No donation is too small! ...and SHARE, SHARE, SHARE

If we get to our goal, a couple of Karalyn's wishes:

1. Keith, Jennifer, Kaitlyn, Maddie, Karalyn and Kason are going to take a much needed BEACH TRIP TO CAPE SAN BLAS ON SPRING BREAK! This is Karalyn's favorite place to go and have her favorite food - crab legs! SO LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN❤

2. Keith & Jennifer can be with Karalyn every step of the way, throughout this horrible journey. They should never have to give anything else a second thought. Will your help, we can make this much easier on them!

UPDATE:
As most of you know by now, Karalyn's scan results showed her cancer, while smaller, is not gone. The scan showed cancer was still in her neck and chest.

The plan now is for her to have 2 more rounds of chemo starting on the 3rd. She will then be referred to a pediatric radiology oncologist where she will have to have radiation on both her neck and chest every day for 2 weeks. Her oncologist originally said they wanted to avoid radiation at all costs due to the long term effects and damage it would cause her breast tissue, thereby causing breast cancer.

However, as scary as all of that sounds, the radiation is looking like their best option.
Of course she still faces the possibility of secondary cancer from her chemo as well.

These next months are going to be really hard on her. Her hemoglobin levels were already borderline for needing a transfusion, and with another chemo next week it could hit her hard. They are also considering the possibility of traveling to Tennessee to St. Judes for second opinion and addittional treatment options.

Please continue to pray for her, her strength, her courage, her faith, and her healing. All of these treatments will take a huge toll on Karalyn and her family. I would love for them to be able to walk away from the many stresses that will come along with this nightmare and head to the beach this Spring! LET'S DO THIS!! #karalynstrong

FOLLOW KARALYN'S JOURNEY:
Karalyn has started a Youtube channel for everyone to follow her journey with her. Her goal is to get ONE MILLION followers. Everyone SHARE and SUBSCRIBE and we can help her make this happen!
