Almost everywhere I go in the Southern Tier, I see Kendyl the Warrior stickers. I stopped at a little bake shop just outside of Owego and they had a sticker. I saw a Sweeny's Market Sports Modified race car with a sticker.

Kendyl's story is a remarkable one including how the power of prayer can change so much. Prayer is an awesome way to help get through the tough times but sometimes you also have to put your prayers into action. Here are some organizations that is doing just that for the Warrior.
