Thanks Coach

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 place and will continue to stay positive and overcome this setback. Special thanks to Coach London who continues to motivate and support Kendall! Here’s a message he sent her.

Coach Bayne

Yes I said coach, I hear there is a bit of a setback. No worries coach you are the toughest person I know. Don’t allow your mind to put a period in place of a comma. Translation: every mental, emotional and spiritual aspect of your thought process is positive move on, move through or move around the issue as it is now. I believe you have the IT factor to do that. Thinking of you KB.

Coach London


Keep fighting Kenny! Everything is going to be ok!

We Love You! Mom, Dad, Connor and all of Team Kendall!

    Coach London has got that right. Great Message. We believe in you, Kendall, always. We love you more than you can imagine. The following is a Quote from another famous, all time Coach.

    Hi, Kendall!

    I am sitting here wondering what can I say? You say it all when you beam that trademark smile! I pray that your benefits are equal to ours when you display your courage and determination to win. I do not believe that you have a negative word in your vocabulary. I am glad that you have been having some fun. I have not been as communicative as in the past because I want to give you a rest. With all my “trophies” of you, you are always in my prayers and thoughts. If there is anything I can do to assist you in maintaining that trademark smile, I am on call. Prayers and blessings to you and your family

  11. The Deutchki Family says:

    We are always thinking of you, Kendall, and praying for you and your family. I ran across this quote the other day and immediately thought of you…”Keep your head up. God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers.” You will triumph over this setback. Stay strong and positive, Kendall. We love you here in North Carolina.

    Diane, John, Sarah and Liz
