Kendra's Kampaign

For those of you who have not had the greatest pleasure of meeting this sweet girl, she is Kendra. She is 12 years old, the baby sister, and the love of everyone she meets. Kendra was born with a rare genetic disorder. So rare in fact, that she is the first one to go through it and is leading the way for the medical world.
She learned to walk at the age of 4, and hasn't been able to be stopped since. She is a truly amazing spirited little woman, who just wants to be like everyone else. She loves to jump in the van and head to Toronto to see her favourite Wolf Pack play Rugby. She cheers the loudest for Fui Fui when he is on the field. She wants to run and follow her sisters around, and just be a normal girl.
In February of 2016, Karyn-Kendra's Mom started noticing that Kendra wasn't walking as well. It was a slow on-set of symptoms, to the point that now Kendra needs constant support through either a gait trainer or a wheelchair to get around.
She has been to numerous specialists and they have diagnosed her with Patella Alta, crouched gait and lower ectremity contractures, and tronchanter bursitis. This condition is EXTREMELY painful.
Her mom and dad are trying everything they can to get her the help she needs. Surgery may be in her future, if the doctors and her parents feel it is something that will help her pain go away. Right now though, they need to concentrate on making their house accessible for her to manoever in her wheelchair.
Her parents are tremendous people who would give their shirts off their backs to help you. They are always there to give freely of their time to others, and never expect anything in return. I think it's time that our community of friends and family help them in their time of need.
Join me in helping to make Kendra's house more accessible. It will make her life so much easier, and will help her parents stress level be reduced. Any donation at all will be gratefully accepted.
