Kylie Kuhns’ Aspirations and Inspirations

A few years back I had the honor of having Kylie Kuhns, the daughter of Apex Modular Homes’ owner, Lynn Kuhns, speak at one of my Builder Breakfasts about Kelsey’s Dream. It was the first time many in our industry had heard of her and the dedication she has for helping children with cancer to not feel alone and scared.

Now, just a few years later, this young woman is recognized by many people and organizations around the world for her hard work and love for the cause that bears her sister’s name, Kelsey Kuhns.

What a pleasant surprise to learn that Kylie, a Penn State student, has been recognized by for all her efforts in support of children with cancer. As an industry, let’s continue to support Kylie and Kelsey’s Dream.

Kelsey's Dream brings light, companionship and support to children undergoing cancer treatments.

Now a sophomore in college, this girl isn't slowing down, showing cancer that the Kuhns girls are never going to stop fighting.
