Kendall James – Age 6
Kendall James was five-years-old and diagnosed with stage III embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma cancer on New Years Day, 2017. Kendall started chemotherapy on 1/13/2017. Then in April 2017, she underwent surgery. After surgery, Kendall began radiation with chemotherapy. Kendall turned six-years-old on August 8th, 2017. Again, we think a birthday is something to celebrate! Most children having a birthday and turning six would want presents for themselves, not Kendall. You see she is extraordinary, too. Kendall asked for people to give her gifts to take to the Ronald McDonald House in Nashville, TN for the other children she had met while staying there so often. Kendall fought a fight that no child should ever have to undergo. However, she was told on January, 26th, 2018 she is in remission. Kendall was treated at the amazing Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN. Kendall will continue to get scans every three months and visit her pediatric oncologist at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. Kendall loves riding Fred, her horse! Kendall loves people, singing, and playing games. Kendall’s family, mom, Kendra, dad, Shawn, sister Kaydee, and KeAnna James have all been affected by Kendall’s battle.
