We were noticing strange things that were going on with Rylee for several months, having issues going to the bathroom, squirming around, seeming uncomfortable, and at times she was inconsolable with no apparent reason,each time we took her to the doctor they said it was constipation. Until finally one week before Rylee’s first birthday we took her into Children’s Urgent care where they performed a scan on her abdomen, and that is when our entire lives changed. They sent us down to Children’s Hospital to have a more in-depth scan performed to be sure of what they saw, and we were told that Rylee had Cancer (Neuroblastoma). From that point nothing was or will ever be the same for anyone in our family. Rylee spent the next year and a half fighting for her life with no known cure for her disease; she went though many long surgeries, chemo, radiation, ports being put in, ports being removed, poking, prodding, and living behind hospital walls for the most part, but come March of 2014 her tiny body just could not fight anymore and we lost her. Our entire world was shook to the core. Rylee has two little brothers, one of which will not remember the time her spent with his sissy bear and the other who will never know her in this lifetime. The amount of love and lessons she shared with the world will never be forgotten but neither will the pain of her leaving. Thank you for what you do!
