PLAINFIELD, Ind. (WISH) - 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.”
With the motto being “Kick it,” Morgan knew he wanted to get involved after meeting Kendra at a relay for life event in Plainfield. Morgan got local business to donate $20 for every extra point he makes and $60 for every field goal he makes. Last season, they raised almost $3,000.
"She's my role model,” said Morgan. “Even though she's really little, I look up to her because of everything she's fought through."
