The Story

Kristen Rice is a 17 year old senior at West Blocton High School.  She is an active member of West Blocton Fighting Tiger Band, A/B Honor Roll Student, and member of the National Honor Society.

On Septemeber 17, 2013 she was diagnosed with an extremly rare form of stage IV T cell Rich B Cell Lymphoma requiring almost continous hospitialization.  There are only 7 known cases in children. This is Benjamin Russell Children's Hospital's first and only case.  She is undergoing the most aggressive form of chemo therapy to battle this disease.  Our hope and prayer is that she will be able to withstand such an aggressive treatment.  This form of treatment is very expensive and will exceed medical insurance coverage very quickly.  We would appreciate any financial support you would be able to provide.  

Kristen's education is very important to her, so she has continued her studies through homebound tutoring even though she is physically weak.  

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this time.
