Shaylee Sueann Sanderson passed away on January 6, 2016 at the UC Davis Children’s hospital in Sacramento, CA after a long battle with Ependymoma Brain Cancer. Shaylee was 14.

A celebration of Shaylee’s Life will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, January 24 at Butlermakers Cottage, Western Gateway Park.

As Shaylee requested, we well have a few games and a balloon release. We invite friends and family to join us in honoring our beautiful angel.

In lieu of flowers, a new toy can be donated for the kids at UC Davis Children’s Hospital.
