Now 16, Kennedy Hubbard was born with Lymphatic Malformation, a mass of fluid-filled cysts surround her mouth and jaw. She was about five years old before she knew she was different. But Kennedy didn't let those differences faze her. Two years ago, when she was a freshman, she and her family launched Kennedy's Cause, which has raised more than $34,000 by selling bracelets, t-shirts and car magnets stamped with her personal motto – "Shine."
