In October 2016, the Stamp family was devastated by the news that their four-year-old daughter, Layla, had a form of pediatric brain cancer called medulloblastoma. Even after surgery and months of chemotherapy and radiation, Layla's cancer returned. For 14 months, the family fought and tried every possible treatment available only to lose Layla on November 11, 2017, shortly after her fifth birthday.
During their journey, the Stamps learned just how little funding there was for pediatric cancers and also how financially difficult it can be for families. Layla's Legacy was founded to create change in research, to be advocates of the disease, and to help support families by offsetting costs where needed.
Donations support cancer research and help families who currently have a child being treated for cancer.
Layla's Legacy hosts two signature events:
- In July, the second annual Tutus for Brain Tumors tees off at Gentle Creek Golf Club in Prosper.
- In September, the Gold Gala honors Layla and the legacy that continues in her memory. Head here to keep updated on event info.
