MEET KENNEDYKennedy was the inspiration for the first Chance for Life event 10 years ago.

Kennedy has always been a happy, social child. But, at the young age of just two years old, she was diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor that spanned from C-2 to T-2.

After a grueling 6-hour tumor resection surgery and an 18-month intensive chemotherapy protocol, it appeared that Kennedy was cancer free. Just three short months later, the tumor returned back to its original size. Throughout the past eight years, Kennedy has gone through a number of chemotherapy protocols, countless holistic medicines and yet another tumor resection surgery. Unfortunately, the tumor still remains and has since spread through her central nervous system and into her brain.

Despite being dealt this terrible hand, Kennedy has maintained an incredibly positive and optimistic outlook on life. If it weren't for the braces on her legs and the limp hand, no one would ever imagine that she has been battling cancer for most of her life. Her gift is her ability to inspire others with her "can do" attitude. Kennedy continues to make gains physically, however, her spinal cord tumor continues to grow.

Support for research of spinal tumors is essential to finding a cure. It is a race against the clock, and every dollar counts.

Kennedy poses on the red carpet at 2013's Chance for Life event.
