She's been a fighter since the beginning and continues to fight every day. Kendyl Rae isn't just a warrior, she is Kendyl the Warrior. She is still continues to make improvements, slowly and surely.

I can't imagine what they are going through and when I try to put myself in their place and think "What if that happened to my daughter, Tara?" I can't fathom it because I would be unable to fix it myself. I have faith but I would still want to be the one who can make it all better.

Her story is a testament to the power of prayer and how to put prayers into action. That's exactly what you've been doing as her brain and body continue to heal. Kendyl needs a critical piece of equipment that'll help her to walk again.

Helping Kendyl The Warrior To Walk Again

This piece of equipment is a game-changer and it'll change the outlook for this little girl's recovery. Insurance doesn't cover this equipment and the family is only looking for help, not for anyone to pay for it all.

According to the Kendyl the Warrior FB page, she's not talking again yet but she's been proving the doctors wrong again and again. She's been brave and is a fighter BUT most of all she is LOVED. Go here to see what you can do as the community continues to look for ways to help Kendyl the Warrior.
