Volunteer shines for kids
When Kendra Bryan is asked why she volunteers for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, her answer is always the same: “It’s about the babies,” she says with a smile.
Bryan doesn’t have a child with a brain tumor, or children of her own. But she’s found a cause in the PBTF’s mission.
“You have to have something to stand for,” Bryan says. “I’ve got to be here to help the kids.”
Bryan first heard about the PBTF during the first Bob’s Buddies Radiothon in Raleigh, N.C., benefiting the foundation. She used to work for a phone answering service, so volunteering to take donor calls appealed to her.
“It was loud, but everyone was having fun,” she recalls. Bryan attended her sixth radiothon in November 2013, and also serves as a task force leader for the PBTF’s Ride for Kids charity motorcycle event in the North Carolina Triangle.
She challenges others to step it up to cure the kids. “What else are you doing?”
