Kristle is the younger sister of Alysha Hall (22 years old) who is currently at GF Strong as an inpatient. Alysha was diagnosed with spinal cancer and has been on chemotherapy treatment as well as undergoing physical rehabilitation. Alysha needed to be operated on for the spinal cord cancer which has resulted in quadriplegia. She is using a power chair for her mobility, receives 24/7 nursing care, and attends various different rehabilitation classes. On February 25, 2016 Alysha will be tested, for a second time, to see if she is a suitable candidate for further cancer treatment; the first test showed she was not. If this second test comes back that she cannot receive the treatment, she will continue with chemotherapy pills but may be deemed palliative as she would not be a candidate for other forms of treatment.
