For a decade, the non-profit organization Kelly's Angels has been changing lives in the Capital Region. What so many local kids and families have gained in those ten years started with a devastating loss.

Kelly Mulholland was 32 years old when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a loving husband in Mark and two adorable kids; Connor and McKenna. During Kelly's fight, Mark realized the toll an illness like that can take on a family, not just the individual. A few, far too short years later, Kelly's fight ended, but picked up with her spirit in the form of Kelly's Angels; a non-profit started by Mark.

Now, ten years later and after giving countless scholarships to kids in the Capital Region who have suffered their own loss or challenges, Kelly's Angels is celebrating its success while remembering the impact Kelly had on her loved ones.

A reporter for NewsChannel 13, Mark Mulholland says he started Kelly's Angels because he understood, firsthand, how the family members of someone battling an illness also needed help from time to time.
