You are so brave, my girl. Remember what our buddy, Garth Brooks says: "And I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry"

Keep being brave and I'm glad I get to sail the vessel with you. Love, Daddy

Miss Laurie

Kyla... You are such an amazing young diva and such a great friend and neighbor to our children. You are very blessed to have your wonderful parents who have done everything possible to get you the best treatments available. I have never heard you mention giving up on anything in life nor have you ever portrayed a less than positive attitude. At nine years old, you are already an inspiration to us all! We are so proud of you!
