Proceeds from "Kendall Kollection" benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- When Jacqueline Savage McFee, a designer of popular trendy school and office fashion products, got the devastating news that her two-year-old cousin, Kendall Sierens, was diagnosed with leukemia, it brought things into perspective for her.
