Help Kelli Beat Breast Cancer

Kelli Ridenour is the founder of "Kelli's Cookies" and more recently the Executive Director of "Kelli's Cookies-For Goodness Bakes".  After 19 years in business, she decided to convert her bakery into a non profit 501c3 in efforts to help aged-out and at risk youth gain much needed job training and employment.  She opened her home to an aged out foster youth 3 years ago and continues to play the role of "mom" to this young gal and now has a new "grandson" in her life as well. 

Kelli was just recently diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and is in need of your prayers most of all. Surgery is in her very near future and likely chemo and or radiation.  She is a single mom to a 15 year old son and works full time while now trying to overcome cancer.  Kelli's mother died at a very young age of breast cancer (28 years old) leaving Kelli motherless at the age of 5.    Kelli is a believer and knows God has a purpose for this next challenge in her life and she is hopeful and has her faith to keep her upbeat in her battle.  Her son is her top priority and gives her the extra motivation to beat her cancer.

There is an amazing doctor Kelli would like to see in Idaho who was referred to her, offering advanced treatment not covered by her insurance.  We are trying to help raise funds so that she can get the best possible treatment asap for a complete recovery.  For anyone that knows Kelli, you know that she is the most giving and selfless person there is.  This is now our time to give back to her and support her fight!

Please keep Kelli and her family in your prayers and thank you for your generous support!
