Kaylee visited the ABC13 studios Friday, and while she was here, we learned that Kaylee was diagnosed with stage III ovarian cancer just days before and that she is starting her chemotherapy today.
Chief Meteorologist Travis Herzog snapped a picture with her and shared it on social media asking people for prayers.
"Prayer warriors, please lift up Kaylee. This precious girl starts chemo treatments tomorrow for stage III ovarian cancer. Her motto is, "When life hits you, track the weather." I look forward to helping her do that during the battle ahead and even more so after she conquers it," Travis wrote.
Many of you have shared your well wishes for Kaylee on social media:
