One of the most wonderful things to see is people who do whatever they can to encourage Kylie. We all feel helpless in this journey, but it is great to see people use their time, skills, talents, or whatever they can do to show they care. To that end, we had some more young ladies donate their hair to either Locks of Love or Pantene Beautiful Lengths in Kylie’s honor.
Kelly Lesh – former PCS classmate of Kylie’s sister Kendall
Miah Chadwick, the daughter of one of Robin’s close college friend.
Kayla Cowart donated her hair at Cuttin Up.
Kylie’s friend, Kaitlin Noble.
If we missed anyone, let us know and we will give a shout.
Thank you, ladies.
Kylie made it back to school for a couple of hours!
It was a great start to the year!
Monday, August 11th marks a big day for Kylie.
She is desperately hoping to be able to go back to school. Last year, she wasn’t able to go back after the early April diagnosis.
This is a BIG DEAL for her.
We will post as many pics as a 7th grade girl will let us take – and we want to see your back to school smiles too!
Here is her class party from yesterday
School supply shopping on Saturday
And her first day of school ever (just because she was so cute)
Kylie has chemo on Thursday and Friday, so say a prayer that she will feel good enough on Monday to go to school
And remember to share your best Back to School Smile with Kylie!
Whether it is college, kindergarten, or anything in between – send her a smiling selfie on Facebook, or put it on Twitter or Instagram and hashtag #SmileyForKylie.
Kylie has so many new friends now, we wanted to introduce you to our challenges. We issue challenges from time to time to get smiles and spread smiles. It took us only three days to get all of the US states to be smiley. After that, people sent so many smileys from all over the world that we began collecting them. This is our current map:
Green countries have smiled for Kylie
Last week, she got Kenya, Togo, and Cuba!
If you know anyone in one of the blue countries, give them a shout and tell them to be Smiley For Kylie.
From India, we had it, but this is too lovely not to share
Use Instagram or Twitter and make sure to hashtag #SmileyForKylie
Or share them on our Facebook Page
Until then, Keep Smiling!
Some fun vacation pics came in,
A horsey smile, the beach, and cheerleading camp
Pretty smiles from campers in North Carolina
The Sherlocks in San Fransisco
On a Windy day in Panama City, Bekah & Katherine decided to make a Smiley For Kylie on the sand. With the double red flag out, the people were forced to stay inside. So three bored teenagers staying in the same condo took a picture of Bekah & Katherine’s work and posted it on Instagram before they did. So here is their Smiley from four angles.
Thank you all for taking Kylie along with you. She is still enjoying seeing your vacation pics!
