Kelli's Courageous Fight

Who is Kelli Sheppard-Otte?? She is one amazing woman who has always been there for others her entire life. Her passion in life was making people beautiful  and she did oh so well at that! She is a well known hair stylist from Central, IL. She always makes you smile and makes you feel like you have been friends for years or part of her family. 

She is a single mother of a teenage son with several mental disabilities. She has lost her closest relatives in life.

She has not had an easy life, but you would not know that just by meeting her as she always is smiling.  She has always cared for others and put herself last.

Everything changed at the end of 2013, not only was her son starting to show signs of mental disabilities, Kelli received the frightning  news  that she has breast cancer. All she could immediately think of was her son as she is all he has in life.

Since 2013, Kelli has been through the hardest battle of her life and is stll fighting to survive. She is so courageous. She has been through chemo (found out she was allergic to chemo), radiation,  multiple surgeries,  endless hospital and doctor visits, severe depression and is currently is in the most pain of her life.  

How will your DONATIONS help Kelli?

She has not been able to work since the end of 2013 and has no income at all coming in. She does not get child support, she is literally all alone and that is why she needs YOUR help! Disability has been hard to fight for and she is still currently not receiving it as of April 2015.
She now has a lawyer fighting for her and is hopeful that one day, she will get that help she needs and deserves.

Your donations will help Kelli survive from Medical Bills, and Medications to keeping a roof over Kelli's and her son Camen's head.

I am helping Kelli manage this page, she has been close friend to my family and I for 25 plus years, she has been cutting my hair and making me feel beatiful for as long as I can remember.

So please help Kelli not have to stress about how they are going to survive fiancially, all she should have to worry about is fighting for her life and getting better to be there for her son. Please help uplift her spirits and let her know she the world cares!

Please DONATE!! No amount is too small! Also, please pray and keep Kelli and Camen in your thoughts. Help share this page!

Kelli really appreciates all the help she has received so far and will continue to receive. She is so greatful for everyone of you!

Love,

Nichole
