Rylee is an outgoing girl who loves gymnastics, especially the uneven bars. In August 2016, she started to complain that her left leg hurt, and she soon developed a limp. When an MRI revealed a mass on Rylee’s left femur, her family turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where doctors confirmed a diagnosis of osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer.
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Rylee, who is in fourth grade, enjoys coloring, drawing and painting.
