Kenedi & Kendal Breyfogle
This page is to raise the amount of the Breyfogles' copays and deductibles for Kenedi and Kendal. As needs arise, we will update the goal.
Please visit their CaringBridge page for more details and updates.
Thank you for your support!
I'm posting today to say that Kendal has relapsed. She is currently finishing her first round (her SECOND first round) of chemo at Mayo Clinic. Kenedi is thankfully in remission.
If you are able to support this family, I encourage you to do so. With a $1. With $100. With prayer. With a good thought, a kind word. They are strong and fierce as a family. But, even the strong need a support system- and I hope you consider this your invitation to join the support system that will help Kendal and her family kick this beast's ass all over again.
Please find Abby's recent update on their webpage. Thank you for visiting, reading, and supporting!
"After 127 days, 80 doses of chemo, 19 dressing changes, 106 lab draws, 27 different procedures (echos, ekgs, X-rays, ct, etc), 16 blood product transfusions, 4 biopsies which include sedation (all times 2!!!), a new picc line for Kenedi, and an endless amount of antibiotics and other medications, the Breyfogle twins were shocked to hear the news this morning that they were getting DISCHARGED!!! For the final time!!! And this photo depicts EXACTLY how we feel about it!
As always, thank you so much for all of the support and prayers!
This weekend the girls will be readmitted to Mayo and will have their typical pre-treatment tests including another bone marrow biopsy. Round 3 of chemotherapy will last 5 days, but the chemo is 10x stronger than the last two rounds. This means the hospital stay could still be quite lengthy, depending on how well the girls tolerate the treatment.
I'll add to this update that these two little girls have impressed me with their resilience. In spite of enduring what most of us would consider awful, they have developed sparkling personalities. Kendal's growl-like chuckle would get a laugh out of the toughest of critics. Her approval is hard to win, but is beyond worth it once you win her over! And Kenedi Jo's sunny smile rivals any I've ever seen. She gives that smile freely, and will likely be voted Miss Congeniality someday.
We can't say enough how much the prayers, well-wishes, and financial support have helped the Breyfogles in this process. We hope that everyone will continue to support them in any way possible. Please know that your support, in any capacity, is appreciated and worthwhile!!

So sorry to hear of their diagnosis. Sadly, we received the same news of the same diagnosis for my daughter Alivia. At the time she was only 20 months old. She is now 3 1/2 & has been enjoying life in remission for 17 months. It's scary, but their are good stories! If you have any questions or would just like to talk I'd be happy to talk with you!
Hello Abby, this is Jody Waterman, your 5th grade teacher. Your family is beautiful and so are you. I'm praying for your family that you find some relief soon. Stay positive like that 5th grade little girl that I remember. Thanks for the updates, and I'm so glad that I taught you some of your writing skills. Take care, Jody
THE BATTLE CAN BE WON!!! I myself was Diagnosed with A.M.L to the 16th chromosome a year ago (in four days). I have faith in not only these two beautiful girls but your family as a whole because that's what it takes. Keep on keepin on and kick cancers butt!!!
We are praying for your girls I am no stranger to childhood cancer. My son had Ewing's Sarcoma at age 14 got his wings at 15. I am now raising my 4 year old grandson who has ALL. So I know your struggles and all your fears. I wish I could help but my family is struggling as well. All I can offer is prayers everyday for your little angels and an ear if you need to talk. God Bless you and your girls through this journey.
Praying for God's healing hand on your beautiful girls!!
I have a baby girl that was born with AML. She did 5 rounds of therapy and is doing great. You are more than welcome to message me if you'd like to chat about it. I know it helps to talk to someone who knows SPECIFICALLY what you are going through.
I will be praying for these beautiful little dolls and your family. Wish I could donate at this time, but and helping my daughter and her children with financial help. I have twin grown sons and I thank God that they never had to go through anything like this..
