We have struggled to publicly talk about all that Kelsey endures and all that we have seen. Though we write and fundraise, it is still hard to actually speak to her teachers or friends about the disease because saying it makes it all real. Sometimes, it is easier to hope than to state your fears or reality.
However, Kelsey wants to talk about it and Kelsey created her BRAVE headbands to make a difference.
The support has been incredible. Friends and family have called, asked, and worn the bands. She continues to wear her band to school daily with pride.
Though we still seek a cure and worry a great deal, support keeps us hopeful for someday.
We are grateful for all who have asked about Kelsey, worn a band, and to those who lift Kelsey in their prayers.
Be BRAVE today!
