Bailey Byrd was a carefree twenty-one year old waitress at George’s at Alys Beach when she started feeling tremendous pain in her abdomen. She was later diagnosed with a rare form of Ovarian Cancer Juvenile Granulosa Cell Tumor, which is most commonly present during the perimenopausal or early postmenopausal period, with a median age of diagnosis between 50 and 54 years.
To help raise money for her surgery and medical bills, George’s recently hosted Bailey’s Day at George’s and raised over $7,500 in one day to help her cause.
“It was a pleasure to see our community come together and help such a sweet young woman,” said Ann Hartley of George’s at Alys Beach. “People showed up in their Bailey t-shirts, servers gave their total tips for the day, and customers reached deep in their pockets and put cash in the donation jar. It was truly an amazing day and touched many hearts.”
