Creative, rambunctious and social butterfly are three ways to describe our Spotlight. Laynee loves to try new things, make friends and dance. She enjoys watching The Phillies with her family and playing Frisbee outside.

Miss Laynee has been considered cancer free for about 3 months now. But, she has battled Embryonic Vaginal Rhabdomyosarcoma for most of her life. At the young age of 22 months old, Laynee started to have blood appear in her diaper. After three separate trips to the local hospital with no answers, she visited St. Christopher’s where they spotted her tumor through an ultrasound. She went through 43 weeks of chemotherapy and surgery. Unfortunately, that was not the end of Laynee’s fight. The cancer came back in November of 2015 (age 4) and this time she went through 54 weeks of chemotherapy, radiation and another surgery. The road to remission has not been easy but Laynee knows that she is able to do anything she sets her mind to!
