On August 2, 2014 Skylar West was diagnosed with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Over the last two years she’s been poked and prodded, and endured more than kids her age should have to deal with. Including: countless spinal taps, blood transfusions, hospitalizations for colds, pneumonia, and dehydration. The hardest struggle is when she is separated from her best friend and big brother, Joshua.
She is currently in maintenance and will be finished treatment at the end of this year, finally. She has always been a happy baby since birth, and continues to be through treatment. Skylar loves Minnie, music, her family, and being outside. She also loves to ride tractors, bounce, and the slide.
