Kayla Leanne Blair was born September 15, 2006 to Henry Issac and Rachelle Leanne (Griffith) Blair in Bakersfield California, joining her brother, Taylor Issac Blair. Elmo and Minnie Mouse were her favorite characters and she was able to travel to Disneyland to see Minnie.
Kayla also loved the beach and playing in the water. "Our Princess Kayla" was always happy and had a smile even in the face of her extended battle with ATRT cancer. She was "our little hero". Big brother Taylor was always ready to help, sharing his Nintendo DS with Kayla when they had long waiting times during treatments.
