Shana KellyShana Kelly

Shana is mom to Landon Matthew, born June 20, 2008 with an undiagnosed left-sided Diaphragmatic Eventration. Landon had his repair surgery on day three of his life and was blessed to go home after only three weeks at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. He suffered from severe reflux and was listed as failing to thrive during his first few months. At four months of age he was admitted to hospital with suspected pneumonia. In fact, it was a right-sided Diaphragmatic Eventration that had allowed his liver to push into his right lung; the lung that was doing the majority of the work for his body as his left lung was underdeveloped. He underwent a second surgery a few days later. After a rough recovery he came home just in time to celebrate his first Christmas and hasn't looked back.

Shana resides in Bobcaygeon, Ontario with her husband, Matt, Landon and his older sisters Skye and Nyah. She is a member of the Professional Golfers' Association of Canada, an amateur photographer and a graphics geek.
