Kaylee Update

Here's a note (at the bottom in pink) written by Kaylee's dad, Ryan on July 22 of the update on Kaylee and what her little body is about to endure. Let's please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers!

Also, don't forget, you can help the family and get a super cute item by purchasing The Kaylee Hat from our shop HERE! Also get free shipping now through the end of August.

We've sweetened the pot a bit too! For every hat sold, not only will 100% of the proceeds go to the family to help with medical expenses but Stellar Trends will donate $1.00 to the Layla Grace Foundation to help fund research for childhood cancer.

July 22, 2011 Kaylee update via Facebook

"So we had a sitdown this morning with the doctor who went over all of the ‘what to expects’ for Kaylee’s Stem Cell Transplant in a couple weeks. She will have a thorough exam and scans done next week to search for, if any, remaining cancer. Now despite the intensity of her previous rounds of Chemo, it’s nothing compared to what she’s about to go through. She will be placed in hospital isolation for a month. During which she will begin the most grueling, intense high dose Chemo rounds that will put the others to shame. I knew in the back of my mind that it was going to be hard, but to hear the doctor use terms like “hamburger meat” to describe what the inside of Kaylee’s mouth, esophagus, and GI Tract will look like as a result of the Chemo. This little girl will experience for at least 2 weeks, the agony that only you and I can never imagine before she even begins to come back to normal. Her immune system will be so completely wiped out that the common cold can kill her. Not to mention if her body rejects her own cells. Only a list of 5 people, including us, will be able to see her during that time. Rylee will miss her best friend for a whole month because she’s not allowed to go into the transplant unit…
For today we got to bring her back home. She is doing great. More than ever, our little girl will need every one of her supporters to help pull her through this. She’ll need it…"
