in honor of Kendra

Kendra

Born on November 12, 2009, Kendra is the little sister of Alyssa, Rosie, Josue, and Nathan.  Initially misdiagnosed with Krabbe disease, her diagnosis at present is uncertain—“we are,” her mother says, “back to Square One.”

Although she has been sick for most of her life, Kendra is an energetic, determined little girl. She “is a fighter. She makes her own decisions, everything is on her terms, she is a sassy little fireball.” During the period when they thought they knew what was wrong with Kendra, her doctors thought she would need a bone marrow transplant. During the subsequent bone marrow drive, Kendra’s parents were told that she was no longer a suitable candidate. The family went on with the drive anyway, and as a result “Kendra made it possible for three people to be a match. This is a beautiful, bittersweet feeling.”

Kendra’s family would like to thank Hunter’s Hope for its help and support.
