Hayley Jones started performing on stage when she was just 3 years old. But music was put on the back burner, as the Carmel Valley girl got older and busier with dance, soccer and martial arts.

The 10-year-old recently turned to music again, after being diagnosed in October with osteochondritis dissecans, a joint condition in which a small segment of bone begins to separate from its surrounding region due to a lack of blood supply. Due to the condition, the bone and the cartilage covering it begin to crack and loosen, causing pain and swelling.
