Meet Kinsley

Throughout September, we shared stories from families that we have helped. Here is one that we wanted to share again with you.

Kinsley's parents sent us her story with an update that we wanted to share with you. We are so happy she is doing well and that we were able to make the hard times a little easier. We know she will be an amazing big sister!

"Back in December 2020, our daughter Kinsley was diagnosed with brain cancer. She needed to

have emergency surgery, which required us to stay at NYU Langone in Mineola for over three weeks. I remember sitting in her hospital room that very first day, waiting for her to come out of surgery, and one of the child life specialists at the hospital came in to ask if she could give our information to the Michael Magro Foundation. During our stay, we celebrated both Kinsley’s first birthday and Christmas. The Michael Magro Foundation went above and beyond to make sure that our little girl had the best first birthday and Christmas, despite our circumstances. We received so many amazing gifts, as well as a generous donation to make our hospital stay a little easier. After our stay, Kinsley had to a have a few outpatient procedures. Each time, she was given a bag that the Michael Magro Foundation had put together with crafts and coloring activities, which helped to make her pre-op a little less scary.

Kinsley has been doing really well, and will be turning 4 this December! She still goes for routine scans and sees her team of doctors regularly to keep an eye on things. Kinsley loves going to school and making new friends. She has become quite the social butterfly! Her sassy yet sweet personality never fails to put a smile on our faces, as well as everyone around her. Kinsley is also really looking forward to becoming a big sister in November!

Thank you Michael Magro Foundation for all that you do, and especially for making such a dark time in our lives a little brighter for our family."
