If you are looking for a reason to smile after the way Kentucky played in its loss to Western Kentucky Saturday night in Nashville, then let’s turn to West Jessamine High School student Reese Kemp.
He has cystic fibrosis and diabetes, but a heart of gold and has helped many others through his Reese’s Resources foundation and his Reese’s Bucket List. He has helped feed families at Thanksgiving, helped children receive toys at Christmas and given Valentines to the needy.
He’s also become a favorite of many UK basketball players who love his infectious enthusiasm — and Saturday he got a visit from twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison along with Dakari Johnson, three of the six new McDonald’s All-Americans on John Calipari’s team.
“Was awesome to have the guys visit me and means so much to have #BBN behind me when I’m down! When Dakari, Andrew and Aaron visited me they saw the PS3 (PlayStation3) and knew they wanted to get smack in 2K, so that’s what I did! Also they invited me to their open gym, so I’m really excited to ball out!” Kemp said.
