    • About

      At three weeks of age, my sweet Kendyl contracted meningitis. This virus caused several hundred thousand micro-mini strokes. Kendyl was left with partial blindness in both eyes and seven brain tumors. In addition to that Kendyl suffered countless seizures, which she still experiences even now. Kendyl is non-verbal and permanently confined to a wheel chair. Despite her many disabilities, Kendyl has always participated in regular activities with all her peer. However, participating with her peers required hours of modifications, even with the most simplest tasks. I concluded at that moment that I was going to create programs and build fully, inclusive-accessible playgrounds for children of ALL ABILITIES.

      To date, Kendyl and Friends Foundation, INC has raised and distributed over 1.3 million dollars to assist special needs/disabled children, built a total of five inclusive playgrounds, founded the Overcomer baseball league, purchased several inclusive bikes for disabled individuals, began to push Kendyl’s Bill: a bill that will, eventually, require all new playgrounds built in the state of Kentucky to include at least a wheel chair swing so that children of all ages and abilities are able to play. In the 2018 session, House Resolution 191 was passed in the KY State House, sponsored by State Representative Kim King, and in the KY State Senate, Senate Resolution 260 sponsored by State Senator Tom Buford. This resolution strongly encourages the inclusion of wheel chair swings in new playgrounds. The hope is this will become a law in the state of Kentucky in the near future.
