My Story

Kelly had a smile that could light up any room and a memorable laugh that would stay with you for hours. She was your average teenage girl -- she loved spending time with her friends, listening to music, playing on the computer, going to school dances, and most of all, sports. She loved going to Binghamton Senators games with her friends and loved watching the New York Giants and Yankees. Her passion was basketball. She was a phenomenal player and was moved up to the Varsity team at the end of her freshman year. Unfortunately, she never got to play with the Varsity team. Kelly's love for life is with us every day, as is the strength that she displayed throughout her battle with cancer. Kelly has been an inspiration to all who knew her, and her sweet memory will never be forgotten.
