Have you ever heard of AVM or Arteriovenus Malformation? Most people have not. AVM is a tangle of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins. In those people who have it, it can cause headaches, seizures, aneurysms and even strokes. 6th grader Kendall Kemm has had an AVM her whole life, she just didn’t know it until she had a stroke when she was in 5th grade. She is anxious for doctors to find a cure to help her and others with the same condition. She has started an organization called Kendall’s Crusade to raise money to find a cure and help others. If you would like to help, please purchase a t-shirt in the student council corner each morning for the rest of the year. Shirts will cost $10.00. Kendall came up with the saying on the shirt, “Don’t Bring Down My Positive.” Please show your support for Kendall’s Crusade by purchasing a shirt.
