If your child develops a little skin bump on the back, you'd probably think it was a mosquito bite or a skin irritation, not cancer. But that's the diagnosis an area family heard two years ago.
Fortunately, 10-year-old Kylee Branton of Philipsburg is in remission from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and this coming weekend her family and her friends plan to give back to the community that helped them make it through.
Team Kids Hope is putting together a kid-centered booth for the Philipsburg Relay for life. It'll feature a dunking booth and various games with prizes.
Kylee's mother Lisa said people in the small community came out in force to support her family when Kylee was diagnosed and now she and her family want to do their best to help others facing cancer.
The Philipsburg Relay For Life gets underway Saturday June 19th at the parking lot lot of the Geisinger Medical Offices in Philipsburg. The official kick-off starts at noon.
The Bellwood Relay For Life Kicks Off Friday night in the borough.
