HARRAH – Hope in the Heartland will host the Kensley Graham Benefit Concert Oct. 3 at The State Theatre.
On Dec. 18, 2019, 9-year-old Kensley was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. She had radiation treatments for six weeks and was able to ring the bell signaling the end of treatments on Feb. 13.
While waiting on a clinical trial to begin for the revolutionary new Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy treatments, her neuro-oncologist in Seattle recommended Kensley start another clinical trial in the interim. She and her family traveled to Seattle at the end of March. They were there for nine weeks during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Kensley was able to return home to Choctaw at the beginning of June and is currently stable. As a requirement of the trial that she is currently on, she has to travel back to Seattle every nine weeks for check ups and testing.
Kensley will still participate in a CAR T-cell therapy trail in Seattle. Treatment has been delayed because of the COVID pandemic.
Masters Voice will perform at The STATE Productions Theatre along with a couple local special guests TBA.
Come out and support this little girl, have a great time, sing, dance, socialize, and enjoy the evening.
Tickets are a suggested $10 donation at the door, so please, come out and show your support. Proceeds raised will go to Kensley Graham’s family to help them fight Kensley’s brain tumor.
