Hi, I’m Kaela…

I’m 15 years old. I live in Sayreville, NJ and I have one brother, Anton (age 14). I like arts and crafts, YouTube and video blogs and I love adventures with my family. When I grow up, I want to be a psychologist.

At age 5, I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. Cancer took my left leg but it can’t stop me me from doing triathlons, running, swimming and enjoying life in general.

My favorite Candlelighters NYC experiences include the birthday parties, Halloween, holiday parties, shows, events and helping kids and families have fun. My parents say their favorite part of Candlelighters is everything that Candlelighters NYC is doing, including events and parties – and we love Barbara!

…And my family uses these words to describe Candlelighters NYC:  Love, hope, fun, compassion, caring
