Care for Kendra

Kendra Casey Plank is 18 months into her battle against lymphoma. Before her diagnosis in January 2017, she was busy helping her four sons - who range in ages from 14 to 6 pursue an Eagle Scout rank, navigate the wonders of boyhood and even prepare for kindergarten. She did all this while working as a full-time editor.

Kendra has undergone radiation, chemotherapy and is now receiving an infusion treatment, along with antibiotics to work against her aggressive form of cancer. Her treatment was paused recently due to unexplained infections which brought on high fevers.

The complications haven’t stopped with the physical. There are new financial concerns and worries about ongoing hospital stays to manage her everyday care and recovery.

You would never guess this because Kendra’s smile continues to light up any room. This Texas native keeps her dry wit even on the darkest days.

Kendra is as strong as she is funny. Her faith defines her. While in her early twenties, Kendra was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and was in remission when she met her future husband Travis.  

After 15-plus years of marriage, Kendra and Travis have a steady partnership and continue to be everyone’s favorite couple to be around whether on the ballfield cheering on one of the boys or sitting in the audience of a school play. Kendra and Travis, who served in the US Air Force, have lived in Northern Virginia since 2000.

Kendra inspires many of us - not only by how bravely and fiercely she’s fighting cancer for the second time, but also for the loving, accepting Christian she is in everyday life, for the fun and playful mom she is to four active and kind boys, for the devoted and caring daughter, sister, friend and wife she is.

Care for Kendra has a goal of raising $50,000 to help with Kendra’s medical and related expenses. With questions swirling about Kendra’s infections, insurance coverage, and potential surgeries in her future, Kendra faces many unknowns. Please join us in caring for her by whatever means you feel led. You may offer financial support of any amount or give the gift of prayer or both. Whatever you do, please help spread the word on your Facebook page, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and any other venues at your fingertips.

Thank you in advance.

Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup. You make my lot secure. -- Psalm 16:5
