The tumor is located in the Pons region of her brain, the area that connects the upper and lower parts of the brain. Due to the tumor's location, surgery is not an option. Kemp is set to begin radiation treatment later this month with a plan for further treatment to follow thereafter.
Kemp appeared in twenty-eight games for the Seawolves in 2016, starting sixteen. She amassed seven hits, four of them for extra bases, and stole three bases.
The GoFundMe account set up to help Kemp's family with medical expenses had raised more than $16,000 in five hours as of late Monday night. You can find the fundraising campaign here.
