Kayla Nakonechni is well-known on campus as the girl with brain cancer, but how well do you know the real her? She’s an avid crossword puzzler, a sucker for romance novels and a pediatric cancer patient who wants so desperately to give back to the community that has given her so much. Kayla’s story is one of turmoil and tumors, Nittanyville and Nicholas Sparks, but most importantly, the struggle to survive. Life is tough, but she is tougher.
To read her story and other life & style happenings on campus, pick up a copy of Valley Magazine this week. Find them in the HUB, outside Willard and at Findlay, Pollock and Redifer commons from November 17 through 20. Don’t miss out – our print edition only comes around once a semester!
