Ready to come home


Kendall spent 9 days at NIH and was treated with an experimental drug. We would like to thank our nurse Lisa for her outstanding care. Kendall had experienced some joint/bone pain but was able to receive all of her scheduled doses. She returned home on Saturday evening and the following day she began having some […]

Kenny's little Girl

Sorry its been a while since we have posted but Kendall was doing well; skiing and enjoying the holidays. Last week she experienced some abdomen pain and the scans revealed a growth and she is now scheduled for radiation this coming week. It’s frustrating but with our team of physicians we have a plan in […]

Happy Thanksgiving

CS Cheer

It’s been a great couple of months allowing Kendall to be a teenager and enjoy her Senior year; cheering, homecoming court and Beta club inductee.

Thanks Scottsdale

Kenny's nurses!

As planned, Kendall had her scheduled CT scans following her 2nd cycle of this investigational drug PLK1. Because this was a Phase 1 study, we knew it was a calculated risk to try something new and unproven. Her scans thankfully showed NO new growth. Her tumors in her abdomen are smaller, but we attribute that […]
