Christmas 2010- Kimberly's Hope

Kimberly Shaw was a wonderful mother, daughter and friend. At just 25 years old she touched so many lives! She always had faith and hope in miracles. Kimberly was one of our biggest supporters. Last Christmas she gave a large donation, even though she was struggling with chemo, bills and fighting her own cancer. She believed that these kids deserved more than we could give them. She believed in us.

To honor Kimberly, the fight she fought and the love she shared; we will be starting a new program this Christmas called "Kimberly's Hope" -

Kimberly's Hope is a program where volunteers (just like you) can request to "adopt" a little fighter for Christmas by using the contact us page on the website (www.battle4acure.org). You will get all of the info about your child so you can send them a Hope Box too.

*All gifts have to be age appropriate by the age on the box of the toy (Ages 3+, etc).
*We request that you only send new toys to the children and that you wrap each gift in the box separately. This makes it more exciting for the children!
*You will need to ship your Hope Box to your child by December 5, 2010.
*If you are unable to fulfill your promise to send a box please contact us immediately.

In Loving Memory of Kimberly Shaw
Kimberly earned her angel wings on August 27, 2010. She was 25 years old. She won her final battle and beat us all Home. She left behind a 1 year old son named Barrett. We are happy for her but heartbroken at the same time. To say she will be missed is a huge understatement. She is loved and treasured. We will never forget her, the love she shared or the lives she changed.

I think it is a WONDERFUL way to remember Kim by. Christmas is a hard time for many families with sick kids and all the medical expense and I know every parent wants their child to have a great christmas. Kim can be remembered by everyone by this program, I am sure she is smiling down on you and watching over this project. You are an awesome young person to be so wise and so thoughtful
