It’s difficult to find something Haylee dislikes. At 3 years old she has an interest in everything.

When her mom, Amber, was 38 weeks pregnant, doctors discovered Haylee had a tumor. Haylee was born with her cancer; diagnosed with neuroblastoma on July 17, 2017 at 6 weeks old.

Haylee is taking a unique healing route, in which she is only receiving ultrasounds every six months. Her strength and courage are what makes her a hero to Amber, inspiring her to be just as strong and brave. Haylee’s healing means everything. Without Haylee, their family isn’t complete.

Amber says Haylee is doing amazing and her tumor is shrinking. She hopes one day that all children with cancer will be healed and believes Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation brings that light to the world.
