Fundraising Event For Caylie

  Caylie  was diagnosed with an embryonal tumor with multilayered rosettes on her brain. This is very rare and on May 19,  2020, she had brain surgery at Prima Children’s Hospital. After surgery she was sent to St. Jude’s for further treatment. Since there, two more tumor s were found on her spine. Since starting her chemo the tumors are responding well. She just started her second round of chemo and will be in Memphis,  TN,  at St. Jude’s for several month’s.
  Right now friends are raising funds to help relieve the financial burden of the family of having to move out of state while maintaining their home in Saluda. More importantly, they are asking for prayers for our sweet Caylie and all of her family.
