Kiley is passionate about choppers.
Just over two years ago, Kiley was suddenly and unexplainably plagued with debilitating health issues. These issues all stemmed from an unknown origin. She spent a year dealing with frustrating doctor visits and attempting numerous treatments for her symptoms.

While struggling with her health, Kiley kept a cool head and optimistic outlook. All the while, she hoped, along with her loved ones, for a light at the end of the tunnel. Kiley continued to work full-time as a model and even graced the cover of Classic Easyriders Magazine in December 2021.

In April 2021, Kiley was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor.
Kiley’s brain tumor is located in the center of her brain. It requires a skilled and specialized surgeon to remove, due to both its size and the complexity of its location. Kiley needs this life-saving surgery as soon as possible. Understandably, there are many risks involved.

Thankfully, a world-renowned neurosurgeon, who has worked with a number of difficult cases in his 30+ years of practice, has agreed to take Kiley’s case. He has offered to perform the surgery with a gifted surgical team in Murcia, Spain. Her surgery is scheduled for May 16, 2022. Kiley might not survive the surgery. She has shown tremendous courage by agreeing to the risky and complicated procedure.

When asked why she is willing to take such a risk, Kiley said, “I am willing to do the surgery knowing the potential risks because, without it, I was faced with a lifetime of chemo treatments to try to shrink the tumor. I would have to deal with the effects of that treatment indefinitely, without a guarantee that it would help. When I was given the opportunity to work with my surgeon and his team, I knew it was my best hope.”
Kiley’s future is unknown, but she is facing it head-on.
Kiley and her family are looking toward a future that is full of promise and free of the medical challenges she has faced for over two years. But another burden weighing heavily on her future is the cost associated with surgery, recovery, and traveling, despite what is covered by Kiley’s health insurance. Her family has started a *spotfund page to help raise the funds needed to help Kiley beat this brain tumor once and for all.
