Prayers for Kylie: Parents remember daughter they lost to cancer with generous charity, May 12, 2016
Bree and Luke Rowand's dream of becoming parents came true when their little girl Kylie Elizabeth Rowand was born. The Rowand's, who live in Alpine, California, near San Diego, never expected their daughter would spend half of her life fighting to stay alive.
Facebook Stories, May 12, 2016
"When Bree and Luke Rowand found out their daughter Kylie had cancer, they created a Facebook Page, Prayers for Kylie, God's little Warrior, to share their daughter's progress and journey.
It evolved into a movement of more than 100,000 people in 47 countries donating money and saying prayers for baby Kylie.
After Kylie passed away, the Rowands wanted to pay it forward to other families suffering childhood cancer.
They used their Page to raise nearly $200,000 for childhood cancer, giving the money to financially strapped families suffering childhood cancer and to fund research.
Last week, they presented $100,000 check to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for neuroblastoma research."
