Faith Brings Miracles Mug
by St. Patrick's Gifts & Books
At the age of 5 1/2, Kendra Keliher was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis (NF1 – Tumors in the Nervous System). Beginning on August 19, 2005, she and her family had to navigate life with a long list of health challenges and surgeries as a result of the NF1. In November 2015, it was discovered that the NF1 had developed into an aggressive cancer that was present throughout her body and spreading rapidly. Kendra participated in a clinical trial program towards the end, as options for treatment were limited. She passed away at home on January 5, 2017, at the age of 16 years old. She composed the prayer inscribed on the back of the mug, and the art is created by her father Brian, a local artist.
