I know some of you may know J’Kalien Madison from West High Speech and Theatre, Student Body President or for his extreme love of Cheese. This year he was awarded the 2014 Theatre and Speech Coaches award for making a positive impact throughout his tenure at West High which is the highest award given in speech and theatre. J’Kalien graduated from West High this May, began a new job and is enrolled at UNI starting next week yet he skipped an open house and other graduation celebrations and to spend his nights at the hospital with his mother. This spring his mother had some medical issues which have become more complicated and her stay in the hospital is expected to last months.
J’Kalien is one of the most positive, selfless, vivacious people I know and would do anything to help out a friend. Now it is our turn to help out J’Kalien and his mother by making a donation at http://www.gofundme.com/9joc2s to help them cover daily expenses and bills. No amount is too small and we thank you in advance for your help. Our prayers are with J’Kalien and Shawanda at this most difficult time. Please help us spread the word of their story and their need for our help.
