1 Saddleback Parkway, Lake Forest, CA 92630, United States
At 5:48 am on September 10th, Kayla "supergirl" Andrade, lost her long and valiant struggle with her uncooperative body and went home to be with the Savior that she loves. She would have been 15 years old on October 8th. Kayla was smart, funny, spirited, loving, and brave. Her smile, which she wore constantly despite the pain she lived with every single day, could light up a room. Her face glowed as she talked about her friends, her favorite band (One Direction ) , and just about everything else. She had a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh. She could (and did) speak knowledgeably about current events, and she held strong opinions about the current state of affairs in our nation. She was a very quick study, truly brilliant in math and science. She loved to learn, and pursued excellence in all she did. She understood and could articulate every detail of her complex medical issues, and was a great self-advocate with her medical team. She gave the best hugs ever, every single time. She lived her life to the absolute fullest, and taught us how to live under a cloud of adversity with grace and positivity.
Kayla, our supergirl, you fought the BEST fight! Now enjoy your flawless new body in your new eternal home. We will see you again.
To all reading this: If you are at all inclined to help Kayla's family, they are suffering not only the grief of losing her, but also from crippling medical bills, as well as auxiliary costs from pursuing the best care for Kayla, such as the cost of airfare, and a MediVac flight for Kayla and DeeDee; hotel costs while they were at various medical facilities around the country, lost wages for Spencer, Kayla's dad; and now they must pay for a funeral. If you are at all inclined to help, please go to the gofundme. Any amount helps. We would love to see them so supported financially that they can take their monetary worries completely off of their plates at this devastating time. Thank you so much for your concern and help.
