In March 2021, Kacey was diagnosed in Baton Rouge with Aplastic Anemia. During her initial diagnosis and hospital stay, she had multiple platelets and blood transfusions; bone marrow biopsies, MRI’s, and cat-scans. However, her doctor was adamant that she travel to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX to seek a second opinion due to the expertise of their doctors. Unfortunately, her insurance provider deems MD Anderson as an out-of-network hospital and they will only cover 60% of the charges. With the help of her mother and community, Kacey has partnered with the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation's Carelines Program. BMCF’s programs have helped provide financial support and accommodations.
