Kelly is a devoted, single mother to her 11-year-old daughter, Xailey. Kelly was recently diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer and will be having a double mastectomy (both breasts will be removed) on March 20th followed by vigorous chemotherapy and radiation. Unfortunately, doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital anticipate her going through long-term treatment and recovery, which will not allow her to return to work for a significant amount of time. She is a dedicated, special education teacher, therapist, and a faithful woman of God, so we ask for prayers as well as financial help. Let's show love and help support Kelly and Xailey during the challenging times ahead.

Post surgical appointment went well! My drain tubes were removed (not my most favorite experience 🥴) but feeling such a relief already 😊. There was a concern that I may carry the cancer gene meaning I would also have to remove my ovaries but thank the Lord I don't & won't have to 🙏. Oncologist appointment is set for April 11th and we'll go over chemo then. Thank you for all the love, support, and prayers 💖🙏🏽
