Brenda suffered a stroke almost immediately after giving birth, and her baby died a week later. She has been recovering in Nebraska and is expected to be home next month.
With so many new struggles facing her return, friends are stepping in to make the move home easier.
"When Brenda is coming home, she's not going to be able to come home to her home. And she's going to have to move to a house that is wheel chair accessible," said Cassandra Taylor.
On September 3rd, Brenda Kelsey went into labor with her second child. After she gave birth, she suffered a stroke, leaving the left side of her body paralyzed.
That is why Brenda's best friend, Cassandra Taylor, sprang into action.
"She's always been there to pick up whatever I need help with," said Taylor.
Taylor started the Kelsey Family Army, helping the Kelsey's get their old home ready to sell, and their new home ready for Brenda's return.
"Sean and Brenda are really good people. They're willing to help. They're really active in the community. People really feel for them and want to help in some way," said Taylor
Over 200 people, friends and strangers alike have shown their support for the Kelsey family in any way they can.
"It feels good to help, but I also know if this was me, Brenda would be there helping and she would do anything she could," said Marie Myers, volunteer and family friend.
Making coming home, easier.
"It has really helped relieved a little bit of the stress on their shoulders, just lifted the weight a little," said Taylor.
Brenda hopes to return November 12.
