Meet Kennedy

Like most individuals with CHARGE, Kennedy had a rough start, with 20 surgeries, incalculable appointments and therapies, and a feeding tube for nine years. She overcame every obstacle and every challenge including becoming a total oral eater at age 9, graduating from high school with honors, cheerleading competitively, singing in choir, playing percussion, and performing in all four years of her high school musicals. In recent years, she has been a prolific volunteer here in our city: at a nursing home, at our local theatre, and for many large festivals and events, including the East Coast Music Awards. She has worked as a welcome agent for the cruise ship industry and she was hired to work as an election officer for our provincial election. We couldn’t be prouder!
