The community is throwing its support behind little Rylie Nicholls of Lake Country.
More than $28,000 has been raised in three days to support the “little spitfire” who was admitted to Kelowna General Hospital after a recent onset of leg pain that quickly worsened.
After an onslaught of tests, doctors determined Nicholls was demonstrating markers for cancer, GoFundMe campaign organizer Tiffany Jones-Waite wrote.
She was transported to BC Children’s Hospital on July 15 for further testing.
“Rylie likely has a tumour that has yet to be located,” Jones-Waite wrote. “She continues to undergo tests like the little warrior she is.
“If you have had the utter pleasure of meeting Rylie, then you know how this funny, sweet, feisty lady is going dukes up into this fight.”
The Nicholls – parents Toni and Matt and brother Cameron – are by her side “ready to tackle whatever comes next,” and to ease the stresses of financial obligations, the GoFundMe campaign was launched.
More than 170 donors have answered the call so far, sending donations – big and small and from as far as the UK – to support the family.
