Lives with: Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Hometown: Lake Wylie, SC
Favorite Sport: UGA football
Sixteen-year-old Lake Wylie, SC native Peyton Wyatt is a spunky teen who takes pride in her accessorizing skills, is highly active playing sports (specifically softball), and loves being with her family and her dogs. Having received a recent diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma has not stopped this girl! She continues to live life to its fullest.
Peyton’s positive attitude is what carried her through the process of getting diagnosed. It took the doctors six months and, by the time they finally figured out what was making her sick, the cancer had spread, and her throat was starting to close. But Peyton is pushing through treatment and is expected to finish by year-end. This encouraging news allows her to focus on her sports dream… to be a VIP at a University of Georgia football game! Her family has been lifelong UGA fans and Peyton is ready to take her admiration to the next level!
She’s pretty specific, too… Peyton dreams of attending the pre-game warmup, meeting the players (especially QB, JT Daniels) and head coach Kirby Smart, getting a tour of the facility, and being able to watch the game as a VIP (complete with a buffet).
Honestly, we cannot think of a better way to celebrate the end of cancer treatment than having a VIP dream come true!
