She wants 10,000 likes on Facebook.

This is the "about" part on her FB page.

On Monday, June 20, 2011, Kyra woke up with a really bad pain in her leg. She scooted down the stairs to get her Grandma Val. When her Grandma saw her leg, she told Kyra's brother to go get their mother and father. 

Kyra's leg was swollen, hot, and hard, right above her knee. Her parents took her to the hospital, and after an x-ray, they became top priority in an emergency room that was standing 

room only. Kyra's mom got very scared. Then the doctor talked to them.

He said that the x-ray was abnormal, and could be a very bad infection, leukemia, or a tumor. She was admitted for an MRI. The doctors said that it was most likely Osteosarcoma. So on Tuesday, she was taken to Children's Hospital in St. Louis.

Here, Kyra went through many tests and even got a bone scan. The bone scan said that there was absolutely no cancer anywhere else in her body.

On September 9th, 2011, Kyra recieved a rotationplasty (seewww.rotationplasty.com). The day of her surgery, she was able to wiggle her toes and had full feeling in them.

On January 2nd, 2012, she rang her bell that means she was done and cancer free, but on Friday, January 20, 2012 we were told she is in for the fight of her life. Two more spots were found, one in her other leg and one on her L2 Vertebrae on her spine.

Kyra is only eight years old. She is very scared. Please pray for Kyra, her parents, and the rest of her family.

UPDATE 8/6/2012

The doctors have given up and we have insurance issues. We have taken her home and they will remove her broviac. We are walking in faith and giving all to God now. He is her Great Physician!!!!

If anyone wants to send her love/cards:

I'm so sorry :( It's sad to see anyone lose their battle with cancer but a child is even harder to see.
