On Wednesday, January 18, 2017 we were told Kennan was a very sick girl. By Thursday she was admitted to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital in Baton Rouge. In the wee hours of Friday she was transported to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis. On Friday (1.20.17) it was confirmed that Kennan has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. We have been blessed by St. Jude's and its affiliates where she has been receiving the best care possible. This continues to be a tough road, but with Faith, Friends, and Family we know she will win this battle!!! #kurekennan
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since the hospital opened in 1962. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer. Please support Kennan and St. Jude!
