AUSTIN (KXAN) - At just five years old, Jaylie Nielson has fought a tough fight. In May, she was diagnosed with an aggressive brain cancer. Jaylie complained of seeing double vision and that’s when her mother Kajsa knew something was wrong and immediately took her to the doctor.
“I thought it was just going to be glasses and maybe eye surgery,” says Jaylie’s Dad, Kip. “But hearing that news changes your whole life.”
Jaylie is now enduring radiation and chemotherapy treatments and has been for the past six weeks.
Now Jaylie’s community is rallying around her and her family raising money to help pay mounting medical bills. Friends are hosting a 5k Fun Run , Saturday August 13, 2011 at the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park in Leander.
