Kaelyn’s nominator wrote “My name Madonna and I would like to nominate my granddaughter, Kaelyn. Kaelyn was diagnosed with Choroid Plexus Carcinoma in August 2015 at the tender age of 4 months old. She underwent an 11-hour surgery to remove the golf ball size tumor. She was sent to St Jude hospital in early September and underwent chemotherapy. In February 2016 she finished chemo but has to return frequently to St Jude for scans. So far, she remains cancer-free. My daughter tells the story in so much detail. You can read it on the Facebook page “Prayers for Kaelyn. We heard about your program while we were at St Jude and my daughter and I are big fans of your work.”
Heather says: This girl was SO not having any of it with me. Poor baby girl was done before we even got there. She got carsick on the way in, dressed up in a giant dress she couldn’t walk in, then mommy PUT HER DOWN. Seriously, every time we put her down, she screamed. We tried, we’ll try again.
