  • Erin Maxson says:

    My Uncle Kenneth gave me some of my most treasured memories as a kid when I visited his ranch in Oklahoma.

    From riding llamas to feeding lemurs, those times will forever be some of my favorites that I share for as long as I live.

    Kenneth will be making his way up Mount Kilimanjaro in the next week and I couldn’t be more excited for him as he’s doing it for a great cause and all while dealing with his own struggles, too.

    Although I may not be “true blood” to the Henderson name, I know that Hendersons set forth and do. There is no stronger person than a Henderson and I can’t wait to see how the journey goes when he gets back.

  • Marci Vasquez Donaho says:

    You are like no other person I know. You are unstoppable and give us all hope to conquer just about any obstacle that comes our way. I look forward to keeping up with your journey.

    So proud of my Uncle Kenneth Henderson for continuing to fight against Multiple Myeloma.. The only way we will ever find a cure for the horrible disease of cancer is to support warriors like my uncle who are literally on the “front lines” giving it everything they have to survive…

    I just wanted to give a special thanks to a my very special friend Steve Cohen. He and I have been battling multiple myeloma together. We both have great caregivers, family and friend support .We both try to

    Kenneth you have been an inspiration to others and continue to be every day. God bless you and keep you safe on your journey. Our Prayers are with you and we look forward to hearing about the wonders you experience. (Teddy is my sister.)

  • Paul&Barbara Galyon says:

    Kenneth, we noticed pictures of you hiking in Yuma on January 31st. Paul and I moved from the Foothills of Yuma two years ago to SE Arizona. From looking at the pictures, I believe you were hiking Telegraph Pass. From the top looking west, you would have been looking down on our neighborhood. The pass is used by many, even in the heat of the summer, to stay in shape or to get in shape in the fall for the hunting season. (Of course I could be wrong on the location.) 🙂

  • Janet Johnson Maylen says:

    You are such and inspiration. Best of luck on your climb and we will be thinking good thoughts and praying for each step of your way. 🙂

  • Rose Henderson says:

    Hi Honey, it was terribly difficult this morning to leave you at the airport. I did ‘not’ want to see you go. Yet, I really with all my heart believe you deserve this great adventure & I truly want it to be the best experience possible! It is a grand opportunity for you to reach new heights, literally! I miss you, I love you & will be counting the days til you return. My love always, your wife, Rose

  • Trisha says:

    I am so very excited for you, Uncle Kenneth!! Excited and proud! JJ, Justin and I are praying for you and asking God to keep you strong throughout this journey. We can’t wait to hear all about it when you get back and hopefully see lots of pics!! I memorized this poem in the 9th grade. Reminds me of the task before you. Our love to you as you continue to fight the “good fight..”

    Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
    By Robert Frost

    Whose woods these are I think I know.
    His house is in the village though;
    He will not see me stopping here
    To watch his woods fill up with snow.

    My little horse must think it queer
    To stop without a farmhouse near
    Between the woods and frozen lake
    The darkest evening of the year.

    He gives his harness bells a shake
    To ask if there is some mistake.
    The only other sound’s the sweep
    Of easy wind and downy flake.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

  • Bob Bingham says:

    Kenneth wishing you a safe and healthy trip as you climb the mountain. You are such a inspiration to so many people. I am so lucky to have you and Rose as my friends. You will be in my thoughts and prayers every step of the way.

  • Tom Murphy says:

    Good luck Kenneth. No words can describe the admiration that I have towards you.

  • Kenneth Henderson says:

    If you can not fly, then run, if you can not run, then walk, if you can not walk them crawl, but by all means keep on moving.
    Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • Natalie says:

    I’m so excited, that you are finally there on the continent!!!!!!!!!!! ….Albeit by poolside 🙂
    Soak up all of the sunshine!!!!!!
    I love you!!!!!

  • Rose Henderson says:

    Sooo proud of you. You will be in my thoughts constantly til you’re back home. My love, Rose

  • Bob Seifried says:

    I wish I was there to watch you take your first step to the top and final step back.

  • Teddy Henderson says:

    We are so proud of you and to call you family. We admire your efforts in life and in climbing this mountain. And we know you will continue to be successful in this and future efforts. Yes, we know there will be more to come. There always is with you. You continue to amaze us all. Love and prayers for continued success.

  • Trisha says:

    Sending another little poem your way, Uncle Kenneth. I am praying for you at this very moment. We love you and we are so very proud of you. 💕 NEVER GIVE UP 💕💕

    You Will Never See Me Fall

    You may see me struggle,
    but you won’t see me fall.
    Regardless if I’m weak or not,
    I’m going to stand tall.
    Everyone says life is easy,
    but truly living it is not.
    Times get hard,
    people struggle
    and constantly get put on the spot.
    I’m going to wear the biggest smile,
    even though I want to cry.
    I’m going to fight to live,
    even though I’m destined to die.
    And even though it’s hard
    and I may struggle through it all,
    you may see me struggle…
    but you will NEVER see me fall.

    (By Joyce Alcantara)

  • GerryGentry says:

    From all of us in Kerrville, GO KENNETH. You are an inspiration to us all to live life to the fullest!

  • Tammy says:

    Kenneth, been cheering you on….was awake last night from 12:30-4am praying for your feet to be steadfast to carry you onward and upward! Looking forward to updates from Kilimanjaro!

  • Victor Garrett says:

    Hey buddy all is well in Kerrville, Tammy and Rose had coffee this morning think we’re going to dinner this weekend. I’m sure all is good there and your porters are ready to quit lol. One step at a time, can’t wait to see your pic at the top. See ya when you get home luv ya

  • Victor Garrett says:

    Thinking about you tonight I know all is going well. One step at a time. All the Hendersons in Tx talk to us daily about the climb. I think when you get back you could get a 10% discount on a BBQ sandwich at the shack ( maybe). You know those Hendersons lol. Stay strong and I’ll see u when u get back.

  • Trisha says:

    Another treasured poem that has been with me since the 9th grade, Uncle Kenneth. We love you and continue to pray for you. May you continue to “hear in your soul the music I of wonderful melodies” 💙

    The Day is Done

    The day is done, and the darkness
    Falls from the wings of Night,
    As a feather is wafted downward
    From an eagle in his flight.

    I see the lights of the village
    Gleam through the rain and the mist,
    And a feeling of sadness comes o’er me
    That my soul cannot resist:

    A feeling of sadness and longing,
    That is not akin to pain,
    And resembles sorrow only
    As the mist resembles the rain.

    Come, read to me some poem,
    Some simple and heartfelt lay,
    That shall soothe this restless feeling,
    And banish the thoughts of day.

    Not from the grand old masters,
    Not from the bards sublime,
    Whose distant footsteps echo
    Through the corridors of Time.

    For, like strains of martial music,
    Their mighty thoughts suggest
    Life’s endless toil and endeavor;
    And to-night I long for rest.

    Read from some humbler poet,
    Whose songs gushed from his heart,
    As showers from the clouds of summer,
    Or tears from the eyelids start;

    Who, through long days of labor,
    And nights devoid of ease,
    Still heard in his soul the music
    Of wonderful melodies.

    Such songs have power to quiet
    The restless pulse of care,
    And come like the benediction
    That follows after prayer.

    Then read from the treasured volume
    The poem of thy choice,
    And lend to the rhyme of the poet
    The beauty of thy voice.

    And the night shall be filled with music,
    And the cares, that infest the day,
    Shall fold their tents, like the Arabs,
    And as silently steal away.

  • Rose Henderson says:

    Having completed day 3 & camping at 12,630 ft. elevation, Kenneth had phone service! What a tremendous relief to hear his voice! He says the climb is quite difficult but all the guides are incredibly helpful & knowledgeable & all 8 climbers with his group are a most enjoyable. Though his oxygen level is quite low & of concern, he is doing ok.
    For those following his journey, I wanted to share this update & express my personal appreciation for all the well wishes & support. Rose

  • Ron and Michelle says:

    Best wishes. Make sure you use a rock to cover the used paper. LOL. Good luck on your adventure.

  • Joyce Parker says:

  • Victor Garrett says:

  • Trisha says:

    It warms my heart to hear that you’ve been able to call Aunt Rose!

Be safe and know we are cheering for you here in Oklahoma 💕💕💕💕💕

  • Janet Gonzales says:

    With our love

  • Nina and David says:

    Thanks, Rose, for the updates! Looks like Kenneth is holding up and is being watched attentively. We are rooting for both of you!

  • Trisha says:

    Keeping you lifted up, Uncle Kenneth ❤️

    Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

    Today is your day.
    You’re off to Great Places!
    You’re off and away!

    You have brains in your head.
    You have feet in your shoes.
    You can steer yourself
    any direction you choose.
    You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
    And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

    You’ll look up and down streets. Look ’em over with care.
    About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.”
    With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
    you’re too smart to go down any not-so-good street.

    And you may not find any
    you’ll want to go down.
    In that case, of course,
    you’ll head straight out of town.

    It’s opener there
    in the wide open air.

    Out there things can happen
    and frequently do
    to people as brainy
    and footsy as you.

    And then things start to happen,
    don’t worry. Don’t stew.
    Just go right along.
    You’ll start happening too.


    You’ll be on y our way up!
    You’ll be seeing great sights!
    You’ll join the high fliers
    who soar to high heights.

    You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
    You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
    Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best.
    Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.

    Except when you don’t.
    Because, sometimes, you won’t.

    I’m sorry to say so
    but, sadly, it’s true
    that Bang-ups
    and Hang-ups
    can happen to you.

    You can get all hung up
    in a prickle-ly perch.
    And your gang will fly on.
    You’ll be left in a Lurch.

    You’ll come down from the Lurch
    with an unpleasant bump.
    And the chances are, then,
    that you’ll be in a Slump.

    And when you’re in a Slump,
    you’re not in for much fun.
    Un-slumping yourself
    is not easily done.

    You will come to a place where the streets are not marked.
    Some windows are lighted. But mostly they’re darked.
    A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin!
    Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
    How much can you lose? How much can you win?

    And IF you go in, should you turn left or right…
    or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite?
    Or go around back and sneak in from behind?
    Simple it’s not, I’m afraid you will find,
    for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.

    You can get so confused
    that you’ll start in to race
    down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
    and grind on for miles cross weirdish wild space,
    headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
    The Waiting Place…

    …for people just waiting.
    Waiting for a train to go
    or a bus to come, or a plane to go
    or the mail to come, or the rain to go
    or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
    or the waiting around for a Yes or No
    or waiting for their hair to grow.
    Everyone is just waiting.

    Waiting for the fish to bite
    or waiting for the wind to fly a kite
    or waiting around for Friday night
    or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
    or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
    or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
    or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
    Everyone is just waiting.

    That’s not for you!

    Somehow you’ll escape
    all that waiting and staying
    You’ll find the bright places
    where Boom Bands are playing.

    With banner flip-flapping,
    once more you’ll ride high!
    Ready for anything under the sky.
    Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!

    Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!
    There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
    And the magical things you can do with that ball
    will make you the winning-est winner of all.
    Fame! You’ll be as famous as famous can be,
    with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.

    Except when they don’t
    Because, sometimes they won’t.

    I’m afraid that some times
    you’ll play lonely games too.
    Games you can’t win
    ’cause you’ll play against you.

    All Alone!
    Whether you like it or not,
    Alone will be something
    you’ll be quite a lot.

    And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance
    you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.
    There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
    that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.

    But on you will go
    though the weather be foul.
    On you will go
    though your enemies prowl.
    On you will go
    though the Hakken-Kraks howl.
    Onward up many
    a frightening creek,
    though your arms may get sore
    and your sneakers may leak.

    On and on you will hike,
    And I know you’ll hike far
    and face up to your problems
    whatever they are.

    You’ll get mixed up, of course,
    as you already know.
    You’ll get mixed up
    with many strange birds as you go.
    So be sure when you step.
    Step with care and great tact
    and remember that Life’s
    a Great Balancing Act.
    Just never foget to be dexterous and deft.
    And never mix up your right foot with your left.

    And will you succeed?
    Yes! You will, indeed!
    (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)


    be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
    or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
    You’re off the Great Places!
    Today is your day!
    Your mountain is waiting.
    So…get on your way!

    Dr. Seuss
