In October of 2013, Janie Maedler and her husband heard the dreaded words, “Your daughter has cancer.” The doctor informed them that 7-year-old Rylie was suffering from Aggressive Giant Cell Granuloma, a bone tumor that was aggressively dissolving the left side of her face. Finally, Rylie’s pain and seizures were explained. That did not make the diagnosis any easier to stomach, however. Blind-sighted by a new reality, the family agreed for Rylie to undergo surgery to remove portions of the tumor.
