Junction City teen holding softball clinic to give back to Shriners Hospital after surgery

Fourteen-year-old Jenna Kister could fit 164 Skittles in what she calls her “dent” before she had surgery to correct it two years ago.

'The then-12-year-old, who lives in Junction City, said she thought the feat was “pretty cool,” but that the tradeoff for losing it — being able to breathe — was even better.

Kister had a condition called pectus excavatum, or “sunken chest,” a condition where the rib cage and breastbone develop abnormally and grow inward, causing a sunken chest bone, according to the Mayo Clinic.
