BALLSFEST GIFT:

Revealed on 7/13

Sydney Leonard

Baller since 2019

Sydney was diagnosed with Stage IV Wilms Tumor in August 2018. One night while getting her ready for bed, we noticed she had a lump on her right side. It turned out to be a tumor on her right kidney. This required her right kidney to be completely removed with the tumor. She went through 13 days of radiation and 9 months of aggressive chemotherapy. She has amazed us and has been a trooper throughout this whole experience. She is stronger than we could have ever imagined.

We look forward to putting this all behind us and making sure that her and her brother have the greatest life moving forward. Her last treatment was on 4/15/2019 and we couldn’t be happier or more relieved. Sydney is now 4 years old. She loves to dance, sing and play dress up! Her favorite movies are princess movies like Frozen and the Little Mermaid. She is obsessed with Ariel, mermaids and her 1.5 year old brother Bobby. “Syd” is a sweet loving person with a zest for life and a smile that is contagious.
