David Kennedy:My Story
I don’t have the typical story that most agency owners tell about how they entered the home care field. Sure, I volunteered with older adults throughout college and, due to my love of history, choosing this field was almost selfish because our clients and their stories provided me more value than I can explain.
However, my story starts with my family – in particular, my mom, who I longed to emulate for her tireless love for both her family and everyone she encountered.
I’ve always wanted to care for people. I wanted to do something with my life that made a significant, positive difference in the lives of those around me. In high school, I decided that studying medicine would be the logical career path.
Upon entering the University of Michigan, my sights were set on the necessary prerequisites to pursue medical school following undergraduate studies. I was on my way to a career that would allow me to treat people’s physical needs, however, my plans would soon change.
During my sophomore year of college, my mom, the bedrock of our family, was diagnosed with stage-4 lung cancer. She was given only months to live and there was nothing that I could do. How could we possibly prepare to lose our beloved, vibrant, caring, selfless mother? We braced ourselves for what we knew would be a painful eventuality.
Events like this change your perspective. Every moment was precious. I tried my best to spend every spare moment with her. She was constantly surrounded by the love of our dad and the 9 of us kids. So, while her physical strength was waning, she had a reason to live. Her emotional, mental, and spiritual strength was strong as she was covered in love.
This, combined with the wonderful cancer treatment she received, allowed her to defy the odds and fight for 5 years.
