Plainfield kicker Morgan Hagee and 12 year old Kendra Springs have developed a unique friendship. While Kendra may not care much for football, she’s become Morgan’s biggest fan.
Kendra has been battling Neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. While in the hospital at Riley, she started Kendra’s Call for Komfort, which provides items of comfort (pajamas, books, etc.) to kids going through chemotherapy.
“When I first went into the hospital, I didn’t really have a lot of stuff that was just comfortable,” said Kendra. “You kinda need those types of things.”
