My Story

If I could talk, I'd tell you that I have more friends than words (or toys). My mom likes to call all my supporters "Team Kean". They take turns coming with us each week for "Chemo dates", they've brought in meals for my family when I've been stuck in the hospital, they've brought crunchy chips and salty popcorn for me to eat when I've been on Steroids and they've given me all kinds of books, toys and stuffed animals to play with since I'm on house arrest. I feel very loved! One of my all time favorite nurses (and I have a lot of nurses I adore), is leading a team in honor of me to raise money and shave heads for St. Baldricks. Go Steve! I also have two doctors from St. Luke's who will be shaving their heads. Thanks Dr. Meeker and Derek. And finally, I have three big sisters; Holland, Greer and Reese who got up early on countless summer mornings to pick buckets and buckets of blackberries, package them and sell them. Half the money they raised will go to take me to Disneyland in a few years when I am healthy and the other half (about $400) is being donated to St. Baldrick's. Yeah!!!! Go Team Kean!
