Kristin was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma her junior year in high school. She fought through chemo and endured multiple side effects to get rid of a grapefruit sized tumor positioned in front of her heart. Anyone that has the joy of knowing Kristin, knows her for her strength and inspiration - even while sick she took EVERY opportunity to lift someone up. With courage and endless faith, Kristin survived the battle. She's now mentoring young adults at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central, Illinois. On her time off you can find her gardening, traveling or spending time with her wonderful husband and their two very cute dogs.
