Saylor’s Story


Hi, my name is Saylor Voris.   Two weeks after school started, 2013, my Sophomore year at San Clemente High School, I got some weird swore throat and cold that would not go away for over a week and I started to get real tired.    I also noticed I had this kind of bug bite on my leg that started to look really bad.  I showed my parents and they said, “If you still feel bad in the morning, we'll take you to the Doctor.”   That was Sunday, September 15th.  Well, by morning my leg was so hot and painful, I could barely walk on it.   Dad was already at work, so Mom rushed me right over to Saddleback Hospital here in San Clemente.   They did not like what they saw and said my Blood Pressure was very low.   By the time the ER Doctor got me stabilized, they were getting the Blood results, and they did not look good.   They were not exactly sure what was going on, but they needed me transferred right away to the next closest Hospital with a Hematologist on staff, so off in an ambulance to Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo I went.

While there, they ran some more Blood work and found the same results, my White and Red Blood cells were “alarmingly” LOW.   The hematologist did not want to say for without a Bone Marrow Test, but, what they were basically telling my parents was that I have Leukemia.   Leukemia I thought!!!   Isn’t that CANCER?  

Well, one more Critical Care Ambulance transport later to Children’s Hospital of Orange County in the City of Orange, and a “quick” bone marrow aspiration later, and they confirmed it…  I have CANCER.

They told me it is a very, very, rare case of Leukemia.   Only 5% of all Childhood Leukemia cases in the nation are like mine.   Its call Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) with a sub type M-7.

Knowing that I was no longer going to be the Head Cheerleader for the JV squad, I just started crying, and then I asked, “Will I be out of here in time for Winter Formal.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Voris family at this very difficult time. Saylor fought the huge fight and is now in a place that has no pain. We hope that you hold onto the thought that your sweet daughter and sister is up there watching over you and that she is keeping you strong. May she rest in peace while we mourn her passing.
