This freezer has been fully funded!!! Any additional donations will be donated to Simply Serving’s general fund in Kelly’s name. We use this money to provide freezers to families that lack the strong support system the Trues enjoy. We will be provide a list of all donors to Kelly upon delivery of the freezer.
Meet Kelly True and family! They were nominated to receive one of our deep freezers filled with healthy meals by Alana Cottrill, who is Kelly’s long time friend. With the help of volunteers, Simply Serving will be preparing a month’s worth of homemade meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner options) for the True Family to enjoy as Kelly continues her fight against breast cancer. Keep reading below to learn more about their story or to gift a meal or more to the family!
Alana wrote the following:
“Kelly and I graduated together from Henry Clay, Class of 2007 . She is married, and the mother of two beautiful kids named Henry and Serafina. In 2019, Kelly was diagnosed with Stage 4 Inflammatory Breast Cancer with metastases in her brain and bones. Since her diagnosis, Kelly has undergone chemo, radiation, and multiple surgeries. Unfortunately, along with treatment, sweet Kelly has experienced about every complication imaginable… including sepsis, injuries related to falls, and even a wrong site surgery. Throughout all of this, Kelly has done her best to remain strong for her sweet babies. Cancer is something I wouldn’t wish upon anyone, and being diagnosed as a young mother in your thirties is especially cruel. Kelly has been very transparent in sharing her breast cancer story, and her choice to do so is partly why I was so persistent in seeking answers with my own health, eventually leading to my own breast cancer diagnosis. Kelly has been through so much, and I know how much strain that places not only on her, but her husband, Blake, and her kids. I feel that providing the True family with a freezer full of meals would be a great way to give them one less thing to worry about as Kelly continues to undergo maintenance and treatment.”
