Meet Rally Kid Keren. Again.

Yes, you have met her before. Five years ago, Rally Kid Keren was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a soft tissue cancer. Her fight included chemotherapy, radiation and an amputation. Throughout treatment Keren showed her resilience and kept a positive outlook.

With the unwavering support of her parents, Kelly and Jonathan, and her older brother Jacob and younger sister Lyla, Keren rang the bell in 2019.

She had to continue with physical therapy and deal with multiple side effects from her treatment.

A heavy blow came in 2021 to Keren, her family and friends. Doctors diagnosed Keren with a new cancer, osteosarcoma, a bone cancer. Unfortunately, it is a side effect of her initial cancer treatment.

Cancer. Again.

More brutal chemotherapy. Radical shoulder surgery. So many nights in the hospital. Missed the first semester of high school.

But, through it all Keren remained resilient and kept a positive outlook.

In October 2022, with a big smile, she rang the bell. Again.

Rally Kid Keren is one of many kids facing childhood cancer, sometimes even more than once. Please consider making your year-end donation to Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research so that doctors and scientists can continue to find better treatments and, ultimately, cures for childhood cancer. Your donation makes a difference. Keren and her family thank you. Give Now. #ForTheirFuture
