"THE K PROJECT" for Kelsey Malone Howell

Please join "THE K PROJECT" in supporting Kelsey Malone Howell during her courageous fight against Stage 4 Brain Stem Cancer.  Kelsey is a beautiful and brave 23 year old mother of 3 year old Jacob and 1 year old Taylor. Kelsey grew up in Coventry, Connecticut.   After graduating from Coventry High School  in 2007, Kelsey moved to Florida and attended college at International Academy of Design and Technology where she met her husband Jerry Howell. After working at Disneyland in Orlando, Kelsey and Jerry  moved to Homosassa and began raising their precious children.  She began working at Walmart in Homosassa and within a year became a Department Manager.   In January, just after celebrating her daughter Taylor's first birthday, Kelsey was diagnosed with Stage 4 Brain Stem Cancer. The tumor is inoperable due to the fragile location in the brain stem.  While Kelsey is undergoing an aggressive radiation and chemotherapy treatment  at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, she will be away from her husband and children living at the Hope Lodge with her father. Kelsey is no longer able to work and Jerry is now the sole provider for this family of four. Any donations would be welcome  to help Kelsey and her family through this difficult time as she bravely battles brain stem cancer. Thank you for considering joining  "THE K PROJECT"  as we work together to help Kelsey beat the odds. Miracles happen every day and we truly believe that with our support, Kelsey will be our miracle.
