Kyra's family and friends encourage you to show your support for an amazing little girl. We have Hope For Kyra!!

Kyra is an eight year old little girl who was diagnosed with a rare, inoperable brain tumor in 2008 at the age of five. Initially, 11 months of chemotherapy was effective in reducing the size of the tumor. However, a recent MRI showed that the tumor has reoccurred. Kyra has undergone a craniotomy and a recent biopsy, both inconclusive for the type of tumor, making it more difficult to treat. Kyra will require more aggressive treatment in attempts to cure this cancer and keep it from coming back.
Kyra's mother has been working toward a degree in speech language pathology, inspired by Kyra. She has been unable to work due to Kyra's hectic, weekly treatment schedule, as well as managing Kyra's 4 year old little brother! It has been difficult for the family to absorb expenses for Kyra's treatments, procedures, MRI's, doctor visits and related medical expenses on her father's income alone.
Kyra has had to fight her entire life. She was born deaf, has severe asthma and life-threatening allergies. She has dealt with each of these with determination and grace. This battle is no different, as Kyra continues to amaze us with her strength! We love you Kyra!!
