This site is for Kylie Myers, a 12 year-old girl from Georgia. All of her life people called her Smiley Kylie. On April 9th, 2014, Kylie was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. During her treatment, there were days when she didn’t feel so smiley, so we created this site to help her through those tough days. We held different challenges that often brought joy. Kylie fought bravely for 10 months, but her battered body finally succumbed to the disease on Feb 13th, 2015. Because of her indomitable spirit, rich faith, and joy throughout the battle, we know cancer didn’t win, Kylie did. She left her family with two missions, take care of her kitten and kill childhood cancer so that no other child has to die.
We will fight this disease forever (and treat her kitten like a queen). If you want to share a smile with us to show support, put it on Twitter(@SmileyForKylie), Instagram(SmileyForKylie), or our Facebook page: SmileyForKylie
