004Kevin Kenny, 20 years old, sustained a severe spinal cord injury during a hockey game on Saturday, November 16, 2013.

Kevin is a forward for the Junior Hockey Team the Pittsburgh Vengeance formerly the Junior Penguins.

Kenny a veteran of the squad, since 2011, has remained a leader both on and off the ice especially for his teammates this season.

After two surgeries, Kevin remains in UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh where he'll continue to be cared for and monitored until enough time passes to allow for a more thorough diagnosis.

Our goal is to raise funds for Kevin's ongoing medical expenses.

Please join our team of 7 Kenny Strong!

From the heart of Kevin's Mother, Carolyn Kenny

Kevin Kenny – Handicapable one year later….

It's been a little more than a year since Kevin endured a severe spinal cord injury during a Pittsburgh Vengeance hockey game on November 16, 2013. Last year, I was at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, learning that my passionate, full of life, overactive, hilarious and loving son was paralyzed. Injured in a game he loved so very much and treasured more anything.

SOOOOO MANY individuals, teams, businesses and friends to thank. I hope I have not missed anything or anyone, if I have I’m truly sorry. We are extremely humbled by all of the generosity and kindness. Debts we can never repay.

Throughout the year Kevin has participated in outpatient therapy at UPMC Southside and was one of the favorite patients. Ask them about the “Happy” song. HA!

Kevin continues to be in excellent spirits and is hopeful that his recovery will continue.

Yes my son became a Quadrapalegic due to this accident. But he became much more to me, my hero. He'll always be my son, my friend, my baby, my daughter's nemesis, my reckin ball and my great Gazoo

My son has helped me to realize that every day is a gift. A true joy. And he has given me one special gift every day since, a smile! His great big beautiful heart melting genuine loving SMILE!
