#WeLoveYouKaylee Update: Northwest Ohio Loves and Supports the Halkos #ThankYou #Progeria

Written by: Jeremy Baumhower


UPDATE: From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for flooding Facebook Newsfeeds with this beautiful girl.

The #WeLoveYouKaylee story has been shared over 1,000 times on Facebook, prompting people to post #WeLoveYouKaylee as their status and Tweeting it as well. Over 50,000 people have read this post.

Thank You for letting the Halko family know that they do not stand alone. Please keep up the love and support.

The true tragedy in this story is that girl who was born with the rarest of conditions, has to move from her home because of how her bullying was handled.

The Halkos should not be moving, their house should not be up for sale. Those in charge of keeping her safe, should be posting resumes on Monster, instead of defending them.

I am incredibly lucky to have known her since before she started school. Watching her grow up in front of the public eye, never changing once who she is, makes her a Princess to me.

Beauty has always come from the inside. As a father of three girls, this is the very lesson I have always tried to impress upon them. Be a beautiful person and you will be beautiful.  Kaylee is the very person who has shown me what beauty is and what it looks like.

The world celebrates this child and her uniqueness, yet she is shunned in her own school. Something is definitely wrong with this scenario.

Money can make a lot of things go away, but it cannot erase Kaylee’s smile, energy and grace. Kaylee’s courage is changing the world, the way people look at children with Progeria.

Kaylee is the perfect child for the most imperfect disorder.

    correction: she is shunned by a few administrators & students in her school and school district. As previous comments on this site will support how loved she is by her teachers, classmates and Anthony Wayne area residents. Again, please don’t lump everyone into the .1%
