Leukemia Lymphoma Society Names Girl of the Year

Shaylah Saylor is named the Leukemia Lymphoma Society's Girl of the Year. The 11 year old girl has always dreamed of recording an album and Saturday, February 27, she got her wish. A group of women raising money to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's Disease and myeloma and to improve the quality of life for patients and families who battle cancer helped organize the recording to honor Shaylah for her courage
Shaylah, whose blood cancer is in remission, recorded a CD with two songs that will be sold to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in fighting the disease.
The group -- dubbed Shaylah's Storm Troopers, The GI Jane Division -- is led by Diana Povis-Moore of Boiling Springs, Cumberland County. They hope to raise $50,000 during the next several weeks.
Shaylah inspired them to raise the funds, she said.
The team connected Shaylah with Kyle Betts, who has a recording studio in his Manchester Township home's basement.
Shaylah's mom says singing got Shayla through chemotherapy and she continues to work towards beating cancer. All proceeds from the album will go to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. To purchase the CD or to donate to a fundraiser that will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, call Diana Povis-Moore at 574-5516 or e-mail [email protected].
