Age 2

Kennedy was diagnosed with ATRT in the posterior fossa, at the tiny little age of 9 months old on August 2, 2021. 

His fight started long before his brain cancer diagnosis. Kennedy is an IVF baby, the ONLY surviving embryo. God had plans for Kennedy and his parents. Christina and Nate believe that, held on to that and know he is a fighter. 

On August 6, 2021, after a total near resection, Kennedy started his childhood cancer journey on the ANCS0333 protocol. The only tumor left is unmeasurable and attached to his cranial nerves and left auditory canal. Kennedy finished treatment on April 26, 2022, and rang the off treatment bell. 

Through the trails and tribulations, Kennedy and his family have become a positive light, showing courage and inspiration in battling this awful disease. While the journey is a marathon, Kennedy has overcome so many obstacles and continues to persevere every single day. His scans remain “unchanged” at every quarterly MRI, and we pray it continues. If you saw Kennedy in passing, you’d never know every thing this little warrior “lion” has gone through. He brings so much light to others and acts just like your everyday toddler. His bravery just as a lion shows, is how Kennedy wakes up everyday.  In the face of adversity, lions never give up and neither has Kennedy. 

His story is a symbol of hope and inspiration, a reminder that no matter how difficult the journey, we can triumph against all odds.
