Kellen, 10

In March of 2020 while the world came to a halt, Kellen began experiencing severe stomach-related illnesses that lasted for over a month, which led his parents to seek answers at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

During an emergency appendectomy at Children's, Kellen's care team discovered that he had stage 3 Non-Hodgkin's Mature B-Cell Lymphoma. After spending the majority of 2020 in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy treatment, Kellen is in remission.

As the active 10-year-old has been able to get back on the soccer field and will enter the 5th grade in the fall, his family has redefined what gratitude means to them.
