The Story

April 2014

Denise will start posting here & on her facebook page to keep everyone updated. Thank you all for your thoughts & prayers! 
George & Crystal Hunnicutt

September 16th 2013 everything we knew changed... 
My 17-year-old sister Kelsey was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer.

Today is September 20th. Our family has spent every moment trying to prepare and educate ourselves on what’s to come. Everything is moving so fast. After several tests on Thursday they determined the cancer is localized to the tumor by her knee and her team of doctors have set her treatment plan.

They need your help covering the costs of her medical expenses. Insurance will not cover everything she needs to give her best fight. The weekly co-pays for her chemo treatment alone are very high. She will spend a lot of time in the hospital. We are trying to raise the funds so my parents can focus on Kelsey, her emotional needs & managing all the doctor appointments. Not spend time worrying how to get the money to pay for her care.
We appreciate any and all amounts you can provide to help her fight against cancer! 
All funds collected will go to her costs for care. We will continue to raise funds throughout her fight to ensure she is given every opportunity and resource to fight this cancer full-force. Updates will be posted here and on her Team Kelsey Facebook page.

Thank you sincerely from the Entire Hunnicutt Family!

Today is 12/13/2013

Kelsey had surgery 12/11, she had a total need replacement and about 3 1/2 inches of her femur removed. She's in a great deal of pain but she's up doing her exercises & in good spirits! 
Prayers continue as we wait to get the results from the tumor they removed. The chemo didn't shrink it's size but we're praying it killed the cancer! 
We are so proud of Kelsey!! Her faith in God & positive attitude throughout this journey is such an inspiration! She is truly an amazing beautiful young woman! We Love You Kelsey!!

Kelsey is doing well since surgery,  She is extending her knee as much as they would like for her to,  and it is working properly!  She has recovered from her knee surgery very well,  she has been getting chemo every two weeks now and she is off for two weeis it has been more intense since surgery, since the tumor was not as dead as they wanted it to be,  But they are saying that is what it is gonna take to kill all of the cancer cells in her body.  Thanks for all the continued prayers and support for our sweet Kelsey:)This picture of Kelsey is from the racing for Children's day at the track she had a great time that day and a special thanks to Children's of Alabama for choosing her to attend!

Kelsey's been quite ill this week. Her fever just won't go away. Its higher tonight than ever before & she's been so sick - please spread the need for prayer. Kels is sick & I just want to change it all right now for her. I hate knowing she's struggling & in pain. Please go to her Fb account for more recent posts. We've been a bit overwhelmed to keep updates as often as we intend to here recently. 
We love you Kels! Got our Prayer Warriors working on things for you!! Stay strong.

Saturdays BBQ/Softball tournament was a huge success! Thank you so much for coming out in support of Kelsey! Kelsey was able to come out for a bit & get to spend time with family & friends! Seeing her finally out of the house & enjoying everyone's company was a blessing in itself. 
We all enjoyed the bike rally, the band, silent auction & great food! Saturday was a great day & lifted everyone's spirits! We are so blessed to be surrounded by such a supportive, involved community. Thank You!!
