Hero of the Month
Hero of the Month Girl

Kelsey is one of the most inspirational kids I have ever met. She was recently diagnosed with Chron’s Disease and in the midst of her new diagnosis in the hospital on supplemental nutrition, she insisted on continuing her performance in the play Annie. She was cast as the lead and simply told her doctor “I’ve worked way too hard on this not to perform”. She left the hospital and did the play and came back exhausted and weak but with a huge smile on her face. Kelsey continues to pursue her love of theater, school, works part time and is participating in Chron’s and Collitis camp as a junior counselor this year.
