Welcome to this CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.

“I have breast cancer” isn’t something I thought I would ever have to say to anyone in my lifetime especially to my husband plus my 9 and 6 year old sons.  But guess what that is not the case.  Breast cancer has struck both me and my mother at the exact same age and almost in the exact same time frame of our lives.  She was 38, I’m 38.  She had an 18 year old daughter, and I have 2 amazing boys at ages 6 and 9.   My mom will soon be celebrating 20 years cancer free on July 5th, 2019.  She is a true inspiration to my new walk of life and I will use her as an example everyday as this journey is just beginning.

I want to thank you all for the prayers , love, and support that have been pouring into me and my family.  I honestly haven’t felt so loved and cared for in all my life.  One of my clients stated that ”You have taken care of us for so long and done so much to help us with our lives.   That now Kendra it is time for you to receive that help and support from those you have impacted in all your years of taking care of others.”  I know she is right and I’m going to do my absolute best to let others help me and care for me and my family in this hard time of life.  For that is what we are dealing with a small part of our lives that will be impacted for a short time frame in the grand scheme of it all. God has been watching me from the day I was born and will continue to do so for everyday that I walk this earth.
