In Memory of Kenna Chamberlain

Meet Kenna

Kennady Rose (Kenna) Chamberlain was almost 2 years old when she was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Being the brave strong girl she was she knocked out every treatment which included chemotherapy, radiation, a stem cell transplant, and immunotherapy.

 

Unfortunately because the childhood cancer treatments haven’t changed in many years it was not enough to take down Kenna’s cancer. Within weeks she went from our girl who “seemed to be cancer free” to being on full life support in the ICU because the cancer had mutated and taken over too much too quickly. For three weeks she fought hard for her life before she went to be at peace on February 21, 2018.

 

She is missed more than words can ever describe and should be here enjoying her favorite things such as rain boots, shaking her booty to all music and visiting the local shelters because she loved all animals.

 

Our goal is now to not only make sure her name is never forgotten but to educate others on how much more advocacy and support our children need. “And though she be but little, she is fierce.”

because

emery inspired a rebellion

She was small but she was fierce.

Emery was only 2 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer, not just cancer but Stage 4 Neuroblastoma with the odds stacked against her from day one. 


She fought more bravely than any child ever should, but the available treatments failed her. 


Now we fight back. This foundation was created to save and support kids with Neuroblastoma - in memory of Emery. 


We must change this.
