We are heartbroken to share that Kelsey passed away on Saturday evening, April 18th. She came home from Banner UMC on Thursday and spent her remaining time in her home, with her family. We pray for the Luria family, as well as everyone whom Kelsey touched.

With Kelsey’s passing, the family will be working to bring some of Kelsey’s dreams for helping other teens diagnosed with cancer – to ease their burden a bit – to life.  You can learn more and support these plans at BaldBeautiesProject.org. You can make a tax-deductible contribution on the website.

Thank you for you love, support and strength.
