To read more about Kylie’s journey to recovery click the following links :
Kylie has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL.) ALL is a form of Leukemia characterized by excess Lymphoblasts. Lymphoblasts are immature cells which typically differentiate to form mature lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are found in bone marrow but in Kylie’s case these lymphoblasts multiply uncontrollably and are found in large numbers in the surrounding blood.
Kylie has started receiving treatment for ALL, a process that could take up to 30 months to complete. Chemotherapy started on April 22 with an introduction of various drugs prepping her body for the more evasive drugs to follow.
Kylie was also diagnosed as being CNS+. CNS+ refers to the Leukemia invading her Central Nervous System. While this presents new challenges and requires a more aggressive approach; the prognosis for a full recovery is still positive. Over the coming weeks Kylie will receive 10 different drugs of varying dosages and intervals.
This is Kylie on April 24th, she is currently receiving treatment at McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton. Her Mom and Dad are staying at the Ronald McDonald house so they can be with Kylie at all times.
