Value Card Supporting Brittany Kelly
My sister, Brittany Kelly, was diagnosed with cancer on January 9th, 2020 after an exploratory laparotomy to remove a mass, the size of a small football, on her left ovary. Because of the cancer, she had to undergo a total hysterectomy. She has spent the past few weeks recovering from surgery. After several weeks of waiting on the pathology report from the Mayo Clinic, Brittany was officially diagnosed with Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer, Stage 1A, Grade 3. We are so grateful that it was caught at Stage 1, but she will have to go through 6 cycles of chemotherapy to make sure any other bad cells aren’t in her body. I admire her positive attitude and strength during this challenge in life.
Brittany has always been a competitor. She was a three sport athlete at Hamilton Southeastern High School, competing in golf, basketball, and soccer. She played Division 1 golf at Ball State University and then accomplished her dream of playing professionally on the LPGA Futures Tour. Brittany is currently a PGA Assistant Golf Professional at Woodland Country Club in Carmel, IN and continues to compete in local and national golf tournaments. Competing her entire life has prepared her for her toughest opponent yet. Knowing Brittany, I have so much faith that she will beat the “C” and bring home the trophy
