Melinda McIntire Nedbalek

Melinda McIntire Nedbalek was an incredible person and longtime friend of Kelly and the KLL Foundation. Melinda and Kelly met at Kansas State University and were sorority sisters. They kept in touch throughout Kelly’s battle with breast cancer. After Kelly passed away, Melinda was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although going through her own battle with cancer, Melinda was a wonderful supporter of the KLL Scholarship Foundation. She donated her time and energy to bring extra support to KLL events, where her loved ones would wear green “Cancer Sucks” t-shirts to show their support.

Melinda sadly lost her battle with cancer, but her memory lives on through her loved ones and their endless support for her family and for the KLL Foundation. In memory of Melinda, the KLL Scholarship Foundation is naming the second place scholarship in Melinda’s honor. We are proud to carry on her legacy to honor her for all her support. Surviving are her husband Chris, children Cooper and Morgan.
