Ryleigh Meree Stegall was born on November 20, 1996. During the summer prior to her fourth birthday, the family received the news that Ryleigh had Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. She endured chemotherapy, radiation and bone marrow transplants.
She was able to begin kindergarten in 2002, but by the following March a relapse occurred. For the next four years Ryleigh was home-schooled by her Nana (Dean Stegall). During their many walks and special field trips, Ryleigh developed a love of butterflies.
Ryleigh died on Septermber 14, 2007. From the day she was diagnosed, the overwhelming show of love, concern, and generosity surrounded the family. The continuous support during her battle inspired the creation of the Butterfly Foundation in October of 2007. The first event was held in Waynesboro on November 20, 2007.
The purpose of the Butterfly Foundation is to distribute financial assistance to families who have children with life-threatening or life-altering illnesses. As of January of 2023 more than $1,057,600.00 has been provided to more than 380 children and their families in Wayne County and the surrounding areas.
