The 22-year-old suffers from a neurological disorder known as Stiff Person Syndrome. Her muscles lock up and it is difficult for her to get around without a walker.
A stem cell transplant promises the hope that her life can be normal again. But, it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars.
A fundraiser happens Saturday, August 9 at the Woodlands in Whitewater Township to help pay for Kayla's medical treatment. It includes dinner, live music, a silent auction and raffles.
