Each year Westfall chooses a school service project for our community. This year, our staff has chosen to honor one of our former students, Kensley Graham, and her fight against DIPG. During her 31-month battle with DIPG, Kensley participated in 2 Clinical trials at Seattle Children's Hospital which included being the 3rd participant in the Brainchild 3 Car T-cell Trial. She returned to Oklahoma Children's Hospital in October of 2021 for treatment and was the first pediatric patient to take OKN 007, a drug developed at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation. She was the first DIPG patient to get three rounds of radiation at Stephenson Cancer Center and was given the honor of having the toy closet at Stephenson Cancer Center named after her. Kensley fought her disease valiantly and with good spirit and never lost her witty humor.
We would like to continue to help Kensley in her fight by filling Kensley’s Closet with toys for kids/teens fighting cancer. If you are able, please send a toy to Westfall from now until Sept. 30. Something as simple as a $5 dollar donation or $5 toy/ item will make the difference. 5 Below is a great place to shop for the closet, especially for the teens. You can also make donations online at https://giving.ouhealth.com/team/397586
