Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Yardley, PA - Mar 10, 2017 - Kendall Bello is a wife, mother, daughter, avid equestrian, and colon cancer survivor.
In June of 2015, Kendall was diagnosed with colon cancer, and for the next 20 months she underwent various surgeries, chemotherapy, and rehabilitation that has changed her perspective on life forever. With her most recent clean bill of health, including the green light to get back on her horse Cherry and train as hard as she would like, she understands just how lucky one can be even in such a trying situation.
“Kendall is passionate about giving back to those who have also been affected by cancer in order to provide as much comfort and support as possible. She is uniquely aware just how much that means to someone when they are in such an overwhelming time of need. We are honored to have her as guest speaker this year.”
