Kind Like Kyla

Kyla was first admitted to The Studer Family Children's Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart in Pensacola after doctors discovered a 3-inch mass on her brain on Aug. 5, 2021. Kyla underwent four surgeries in two weeks while in Pensacola before she was moved to Memphis, where she will receive treatment for the foreseeable future at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
