Kindness for Kyla

During a routine sports physical in September of 2023, Kyla was diagnosed with significant scoliosis, which ultimately led to a diagnosis of a large spinal tumor. Initial testing revealed the tumor was non-cancerous. In February of 2024, Kyla underwent 2 large operations to remove the tumor from her spine and chest, as well as a 3rd surgery to fix the scoliosis. Final tumor pathology revealed the tumor was indeed cancerous: a ganglioneuroblastoma. During her recovery, and due to unexplained circumstances, Kyla suffered sudden paralysis resulting in paraplegia. She has since been undergoing intensive therapy at a spinal cord injury rehab in Chicago. Kyla is anticipated to stay in this program until July of 2024.
