Greetings from Scottsdale

Kendall will begin treatment tomorrow in a Phase I study here in Arizona. It is our plan to treat for a couple of months and monitor how she is responding to this treatment. We also have enrolled her in a tumor sequencing study at the University of Michigan and hope to have more information about her specific disease in a few months. She is feeling good and has great energy.

The Phoenix Sun dancers allowed Kendall to attend a practice and be with the dance team before the game last night and cheer. Special thanks to Jacque Alonzo and Taryn Carmichael. We really appreciate the kindness and hospitality! It was an amazing evening! Go Suns!

Thanks again to all of our Team Kendall supporters. Because of you, we are able to get Kendall to the experts doing research on ACC.

On a sad note, Kendall lost a great friend and a warrior last week to cancer; Josh Rominger; 17 year old from Davie County, NC. Our paths crossed last spring, and Kendall and Josh forged an incredible friendship.  It has been very difficult dealing with his loss. Please pray for his family.

As always, thank you all for loving Kendall! God Bless, JB

    I hope you and your dad are doing well in Arizona. I hope that even though it means leaving your friends and family, that you find the best treatment for your cancer. I also wanted to tell you that I’m really sorry for the loss of Josh. I heard his amazing story and journey and he seemed like a true inspiring warrior just like you. I am praying for Josh’s family. I can’t imagine what they must be going through. It is hard losing such a brave person. I also continue to keep you and your family in my prayers as I hope you get better. It looks like you are having fun in Arizona while keeping up with the treatments(: I hope that you know that you are a true warrior and how amazing and brave you are. Keep up the fight!

    Dear Kendall, I am praying for you and the family of your special friend. I am glad you are receiving the benefit of up to date research. I want you and all of your family to remember that we are in Lexington, Kentucky now. We would be just the right distance from Roanoke-6 hours-for you to stop and spend the night when traveling. We would love for you all to visit when you pass through. Sending love! The Northerns
