Kendall’s Story

Kendall was 26 when she was diagnosed with cancer. Five years later it returned. 

Grateful for Community

Kendall was 26 when she was diagnosed with cancer. With caring physicians and after successful treatment she was cancer free. Kendall celebrated milestone experiences: marrying her sweetheart, building her career, and giving birth to a beautiful baby girl. 

Five years later, she was devastated to discover that cancer had returned. How could she support her family? Who would be there for her daughter, if she was not? Through her difficult illness, Kendall found strength in her community –loving friends and family, a supportive employer and exceptional local cancer care. She’s grateful for that care and is determined to give back.

Kendall was part of the patient panel that contributed to the plan for the Asante Regional Cancer Center. As a Cancer Center Champion, she’s sharing her experience to express the urgent need to create a home for coordinated cancer care in our region.
