On August 5, 2018, our 2-year-old granddaughter, Kensie, was taken to the ER with what we thought was a badly sprained ankle. The doctor who examined her noticed a lot of bruises on her legs and that she had a low-grade fever so decided he wanted to do some blood work. A few hours later, she was diagnosed with ALL leukemia.

About the campaign
Her parents have 3 other children, ages 6, 5, and 4 (the 5-year-old is a niece that they are in the process of adopting), and her mom is also pregnant with another baby and due in January.
We recently found out that Kensie has a rare genetic mutation that means her leukemia will be much more resistant to treatment and could come back at any time, even though typically children with ALL leukemia are considered cured if they are in remission for 10 years.
As you can imagine, this means many unexpected expenses, both medical co-pays as well as lots of extra travel expenses, both gas for vehicles and meals. Kensie's dad is in the Air National Guard, and their insurance isn't the best. They need all the help they can get.
Thank you so much for your support!
