Tripp has been diagnosed twice – and twice defeated – acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

First diagnosed as a high school freshman at age 14, Tripp underwent two and a half years of treatment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

In 2019, she found that her cancer had returned, inspiring her to act rather than feel defeated.

“I have not put my life on hold for this, I want to continue living as I fight to live for my life,” Kila told us in an interview last year.

Tripp ran a Fund the Cure Next Door campaign, raising more than $75,000 for pediatric cancer research at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, one of the top pediatric cancer care services in the country.

She did all this while battling cancer for the second time.

“She’s one of those people who, no matter how sick she is, the first question that comes out of her mouth, with attention, is ‘how are you?'” her mother Cindy said.

Kila said the silver lining is what she chooses to focus on.

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain, and I embrace that quote and it’s how I chose to live my life,” Kila said.
