Kensey's Story

Images Captured by Kate Mahaits Photography

Tiny Light Kensey has gone through a lot in her first year of life.  She was born three months premature, which meant numerous blood transfusions, antibiotics and a ventilator for two months.  This determined fighter also underwent heart surgery and required a chest tube.

It was difficult for the family to be away from home for so long while their baby girl was in hospital, but the day Kensey came home was very special. Now, this happy little girl gets lots of cuddle time with mom and dad.  She loves being outside and going for car and boat rides.  It’s easy to get giggles out of Kensey with her ticklish legs.

Parents Colette and Scott have advice for other families going through difficult medical journeys, “Stay positive and make friends with other parents who have gone through similar circumstances.”

This Tiny Light has a bright future ahead and should require only minimal assistance with occupational therapy and physiotherapy.  “We love Kensey very much and look forward to many happy years and memories together.”
