  • CMN Miracle Kid Spotlight
    On May 13, 2020, Kynlee thought she had broken her leg falling down the stairs. She went to the doctor and discovered that it was something else entirely. She had a sunburst of osteosarcoma - bone cancer. At only 13 years old, Kynlee was in and out of UMC for a year for chemotherapy. After a hard fight with treatments, surgery, and rehab, Kynlee rang the bell. She was cancer free. Kynlee is a fighter and is glad to be back doing the things she loves. She is so appreciative of all the support she received from her nurses and doctors at UMC and says she could never have done it without them!
