Happy Holidays

We hope everyone is enjoying this Holiday Season. Kendall is getting stronger by the day and her appetite has returned to enjoy some holiday treats. We continue to meet with her medical team to plan out her next course of therapy. We have decided to give her a break through December. This will allow her body to recover and enjoy some time with friends and family. Special thanks to Dr Kartesz, Shannon Kartesz and Adair McCabe for sponsoring and decorating the Team Kendall tree at The Hotel Roanoke benefiting United Way of Roanoke Valley. Thanks to everyone who has signed an ornament and voted to win the best designed tree. It will be on display until New Years Day. Also, thanks again Coach Hicks and Cave Spring Basketball for your continued support. Our family and Kendall are so blessed to have everyone supporting her to win this fight.

God Bless all of Team Kendall! Much love, The Bayne’s.

    May you and your family be Blessed with glorious and happy Holidays this Christmas Season. Stay strong, there are a lot of us out here praying for you.

    Kendall,I added a friend’s name to your email list – Holley Updike. Her sister, Linda Perdue, know’s you from bringing dogs for therapy when you’re in the hospital. Holley will pass this along to Linda.

    Let me tell you, Scott earns a gold star for taking my 90 year old mother and me to my granddaughter’s wedding weekend before last on the Eastern Shore. He said if either one of us argued, he was pulling off the road and finding a bus to finish the trip!! I guess we did okay because we made it both ways with him – and Beth and Delaney!! I thought you would get a laugh out of that!!

    Prayers for you and your family and health providers are daily, of course. I just thought you needed a laugh! I’ll write before Christmas, little lady, but I’m pleased you are home and enjoying being there.

    Love, prayers, and lots of positive thoughts,


  13. Emma says:

    Merry Christmas, Kendall, Connor, Andrea, and Jere! I hope you have a wonderful holiday with all your family and friends. I wish I was there to help you decorate gingerbread houses! Those were such fun days in kindergarten! I’m so glad you are going to be home for the holidays! Lots of love! Nancy
