This fundraiser is for Kaley Wilkerson whose life has been changed from a horrific illness. !NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL!

COPIED FROM "PRAYERS FOR KALEY" FACEBOOK PAGE: Kaley was born A very healthy 8lb 3oz baby, with no complications during pregnancy or delivery. Never had anything worse than an ear infection during her infant life. And nothing serious as far as health since then. From day one she stole the hearts of everyone she met with her sweetness:) She has always been spoiled to mommy, and has her daddy wrapped. She's a girls girl that loves dolls, dress...up and playing school. She gets nervous when a lot of eyes are on her, and she is pretty shy at first. She's tender hearted and doesn't mind crying lol. So I could brag a lot and could go on and on about the normalcy of her I'll life, but I'll spare you. Well, Starting the month of June 2012 Kaley started having headaches here and there, a few were severe, but i gave her tylenol or motrin and they eased off, and she went a few weeks with no headaches at all. Well, 8-8-12 was the first day of kindergarten, she threw up a small amount with no fever or other signs of sickness, so I thought it was her nerves. She did the same for the next two mornings. Over the next week the throwing up progressed and headaches came back. It had us and her teacher stumped and worried. We took her to Dr Artigues in Mccomb, MS and I can just say we had the right doctor on fri 8-17-12 at the right time. I'm so thankfully he was thorough. He ordered a scan, after results of a mass on her brain, he had us admitted to Blair E Batson Children's Hospital the next morning. She had brain surgery on Tuesday, Aug 21,2012 performed by Dr. Shiflett. He removed the tumor from the fourth ventricle of her brain and sent tissue for a biopsy. On Friday, the 24th we were visited by her oncologist, Dr. Betty Herrington and were informed the tumor was cancerous, the type of cancer is Medulloblastoma. So I can say, so much happened within those seven days!!! After Going 5 years of no major health issues, our world was completely changed at the news of a mass. We still have a journey ahead! Just follow the posts. Thanks!!
