There truly aren't the words to explain why I'm nominating Kenzie for this award. In spite living with multiple illnesses she inspires, motivates, and encourages me in so many ways. Using her own illnesses to help others has encouraged me to do the same. She is a roll model for all of us who battle chronic illness.

Day in day out Kenz continues to inspire so many of us! In spite being thrown diagnosis after diagnosis she continues to advocate and change so many peoples lives for the better. When you think of Kenz she doesn't fit into just one category! She is active across all media platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and her blog to name a few.  — Ross

Kenzie is one of the most genuine people I've ever met. She's quick to encourage others, regardless of what she's facing, while being incredibly real and raw about her own life. She is a beacon of light in the darkest times, even if it's just shared experience about crummy health stuff. She's my absolute hero, every single day.  — Kirsten

Kenzie is my hero because she's been through a lot these past few months. Seeing her at a recent conference, let alone seeing her speak which brought me to tears and then seeing her all weekend after such a battle with her health. She amazes me and she also finished her degree that she worked her tush off for. I'm so darn proud of her!  — Kristin
