I am over the moon to meet you here! My name is Kelsey. My last name from my best bud is a bit trickier: Pfleiderer. Yupp. You read it right. It’s a lot easier than it looks, I promise! Think: Flighter…Er. Got it? Good! Don’t got it? Hakuna Matata. I go by KP!

In November of 2017, I underwent an attempted spinal neurofibroma resection surgery. A neurofibroma is a tumor that is embedded in one’s nerves. They were unable to remove the entire tumor, but the outcome overall was still viewed as a medical miracle. With the grace I was given to retain my life and 72% of my mobility, I decided it was time to dive into something my heart yearned to do for years: write.

Patient in pre-operative room wearing a mustache made out of x-ray paper.

After the surgery, I had four months of bed rest to reflect, write and pray. In those prayers, I asked God to use me and reveal to me what I could do to help anyone else who may be struggling. Every single time I prayed, multiple folks from varying avenues of my life, some I had never even met before, reached out to me about how they had stumbled upon my writing, and somehow, one less person felt less messy and less alone. Then one more. And one more. And another. & so, aperture expanding was born.

These pages will hold my honest unfiltered heart. I cannot wait to get to know yours, too.

Have a question? I would love to hear from you. Send a hello below.
