Kelsey was only 19 when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Originally from Utah, the SoCal resident dreamt of meeting her favorite band, 5 Seconds of Summer. Southern California Hospice Foundation (SCHF) fulfilled Kelsey’s wish by coordinating a private meet-and-greet and watched them perform an exclusive rehearsal.
The Australian band spent several hours with Kelsey, sharing words of encouragement and signing specialty items, including a Gibson guitar which was then gifted to her. Filled with love and hope, wheelchair-bound Kelsey stood from her wheelchair to take photos with the band.
