New Horizons of Albany is hosting a series of workshops and lunch to raise money for the family of Kennedy Ann Decker. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the family. Kennedy was diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer. She and her family have a long road ahead of them. Her parents, Nate and Lauren Decker, are facing months of stress, worry, and financial strain. Lauren can no longer work as someone must be there to care for Kennedy. Every penny of every donation will go directly to the family to help them offset Kennedy's medical costs and other financial burdens her family will face. Please join us for a workshop, lunch or stay all day and help us help the Deckers.
