Mother with cancer finds help for her daughter at Camp Kesem

Kellee Edwards sits on the front porch of her home in the Meadowthorpe neighborhood watching bicyclists and walkers power past.

Because of her advanced cancer, she can only watch the people with powerful limbs and boundless energy soaring by. Her future is fuzzy. But she can plan for the future of her daughter, who is only 6 years old.Edwards, 45, has Stage IV small-cell lung cancer that has spread to her liver. The cancer first appeared in 2016 and briefly went into remission after treatment. Now it’s back.

She is still fighting it, with chemotherapy and immunotherapy. What terrifies her is not the cancer itself. It’s that, barring a miracle, she won’t see her daughter, Kate Whitlock, grow up.

“My prognosis is not so great,” Edwards said in an introductory note to a reporter.
