Fighting for Kim
Organized by: Kimberly DeBord
As a daughter who watched her mom battle cancer courageously for years, my heart aches for any mom fighting. The most important part of supporting a warrior is ensuring they have as much family time as possible. What people don't realize is that husbands have to take off work, sometimes give up their jobs, to take care of the kids while mom is busy receiving chemo treatments, hospital stays, doctor visits, etc. Some families go from a double income family to a single, sometimes neither are able to continue to work. My parents pushed through it, and as a mom now, I don't know how they did it. A local mom's story of Stage 4 Melanoma cancer struck a chord with me-with two young kiddos at home, she shouldn't have to worry about finances right now. She should ONLY be worrying about spending every second she's blessed with enjoying them.
