Kalee is a 22 year old Senior at Roanoke College and has recently been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.   After visiting the doctor multiple times over a six-month period for a recurring cough and shortness of breath, she was repeatedly diagnosed with bronchitis.  Symptoms still didn't subside, so she decided to self-refer to a specialist.  After a same-day X-Ray, doctors discovered a large mass compressing nearly her entire right lung.  After a week of X-Rays, various scans, and a biopsy, she was initially diagnosed with Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL). However, after further tests her results finally came back conclusive and she has been officially diagnosed with Primary Mediastinal Large B-Cell Non-Hodgekins Lymphoma.  She is now on the road to recovery having already completed two rounds of chemotherapy.  Kalee is a strong, courageous young woman who lights up every room she walks into. Her bright smile and warm soul puts a smile on every person she meets. Please take the time to consider donating to Kalee, and contribute to her fight against Lymphoma.

Hey Team Kalee!

We wanted to give you all an update with what has been going on recently. Three weeks ago, Kalee went to her fourth (and what was going to be hopefully the final) chemotherapy treatment. Upon arrival she found out she was in fact going to need maximum prescribed number of treatments, as doctors said it would take 4-6 chemotherapy treatments. This would ultimately mean Kalee will have two more rounds of chemo. Kalee received her fifth round today, and will have her sixth in three more weeks. After completion of chemo, she will undergo another PET scan, and upon a clear scan, will have four weeks of radiation.

Kalee wants to thank everyone again for all of your kindness and continued support. It's truly inspiring to have so many people rally around her and join her in this fight.

Kind heart. Fierce mind. Brave spirit.

All our love,

Kalee and Meggan

Hi Team Kalee!

We wanted to give you an update on some recent changes in her diagnosis and how things are going. For those of you who have not already heard, Kalee's diagnosis has changed a little bit and she has now officially been diagnosed with Primary Mediastinal Large B-Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. After conquering a staph infection as a result of her portacath surgery, Kalee has since completed two rounds of chemotherapy. With the change in diagnosis comes a slighter longer chemo (8.5 hours) making it a day-long event. Radiation has also been added to her list of treatments after her chemotherapy has concluded.

Overall, her body has been responding really well, and the hope is that with only two more sessions of chemo, and 4 weeks of radiation, Kalee will be well on her way to beating this.

We want to take the time to thank each and every one of you personally for your amazing kindness and generosity. All of the support has meant the world to Kalee, her family, and me. Words cannot describe how much we are all blessed.

Keep fighting for Team Kalee, and she will keep fighting for you.
