Kyle's Story:Kyle Presley is an amazing almost-twelve year old boy who has been through a lot due to a condition called Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma. This means that Kyle had a vascular tumor in is nasal cavity. He was diagnosed with this in September 2007 after having many severe nose bleeds. The tumor grew around his right eye and even affected his right ear. Kyle had to have a couple surgeries to remove the tumor and since then has no feeling on the right side of his face. He will have to have follow-up visits to make sure that this doesn't come back or cause any other problems. Kyle is a typical middle school boy. He's a fun kid and loves the outdoors, camping, snowmobiling, and his dog. Sparrow cash raised for Kyle will help alleviate some of the financial stress for his family related to the medical expenses not covered by insurance and their everyday living expenses.
