In April of 2018, six-year-old Kinley Sexton was diagnosed with DIPG, a highly aggressive and difficult-to-treat brain tumor. The young girl has worked hard to defy the odds and maintains a positive outlook on life.
Kinley loves to draw, paint, color, and bake cookies. That’s why Cincinnati’s Busken Bakery approached her about a special partnership. A cookie designed by Kinley and baked at Busken Bakery will benefit The Cure Starts Now, an organization dedicated to eliminating all cancers, especially DIPG.
Kinley’s Cookies have hit shelves across the Cincinnati metropolitan area, with a portion of the proceeds going to The Cure Starts Now. The cookie’s design features a handprint underneath a rainbow.
“She is a big fan of rainbows, and then her handprint has always been a big thing,” Kinley’s mother, Ashley, tells Local 12 WKRC-TV. “We've started doing her handprint on a lot of things, so we thought, why not put the handprint on the cookie? It's kind of her stamp.”
Kinley’s Cookies are available at all Busken locations through Saturday, April 13 and are available for shipping online through Sunday, April 7.
