Kayleetha's Medical Fund
$425 of $3,000 goal
Raised by 10 people in 38 months
Hi everyone I am the mother of an 11 year old girl named Kayleetha she is the eldest of my 4 kids. On March 31, 2015 we received news that Kayleetha had a tumor in her brain stem and it had been there for awhile. When we first found out about her tumor the doctors told us they were surprised that she still had full body function, and then they ran more test and found out she had a damaged ear drum and only one working vocal cord. Kayleetha's tumor is a large brainstem ganglioglioma tumor grade I. Kayleetha has already under gone 4 surgeries in a 2 month span. The doctors told her after her first surgery she would not be able to walk for a week and she proved them wrong as she was out of bed within the first 48 hours. She will start radiation at the end of July in hopes of shrinking the tumor but we have been told that the radiation may, in fact, make the tumor grow faster. Since her tumor is in such a delicate area chemo is not an option. We travel almost 1000 miles round trip for all of Kayleetha's appointments. She has 3 younger brothers who look up to her for everything. Kayleetha is a very smart and intelligent little girl who loves to draw. Her goal in life is to go to art school. She is very strong and brave and means the world to us. I am asking for help as medical bills and traveling expenses are tough for anyone in our situation. Every little bit will help.+ Read More
