Our daughter Kynslee, was a medically complex, beautiful girl. At 8 months old, she was diagnosed with neutropenia and then “failure to thrive”, which led to a G-Tube. At 2 years old, we found tumors on her lungs, but they weren’t cancer, YET. In September 2017, we went to Texas Children’s Hospital for a second opinion and she was diagnosed with Large B Cell Lymphoma. We learned that she would need a Bone Marrow Transplant because her immune system didn’t work properly. In November 2017, we moved across the country for her to be treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and then on to Children’s National Medical Center, where she would eventually have a Bone Marrow Transplant.
On August 30, 2018, Kynslee had her Bone Marrow Transplant. Unfortunately, the bone marrow transplant was too hard on her body and we lost her on November 20, 2018.
Throughout Kynslee‘s treatment, we received so much support from our family’s, friends, and even people we never met. Kynslee was completely obsessed with being a Princess, that’s how she became #princesskynslee. She also loved getting “prizes” which got her through some of the toughest times and always put a smile on her face!
We want to continue to put a smile on the faces of other kids that may be going through some of their hardest times. Thank you all for your support in our journey to help and show support for other children and their families in memory of our sweet girl, Princess Kynslee Ann Payne!!
