My Story

Kristin was diagnosed with Medduloblastoma in June of 2003 at the age of 2 1/2. She grew up with Cancer being part of her life, not knowing any different. She was given a 13% chance to survive and was 4th in the country on a clinical trial to help improve her chances. Kristin surpassed all odds and did it with a smile on her face. Always thinking of others before herself. Never using her disease as a disability, but as a form of strength. Kristin loved to cook, draw, and was always fashion conscious. Most of all she enjoyed the gift of giving more than anything. Kristin touched thousands of lives. She moved everyone she came in contact with, in a very special way. She loved all of the nurses at the Aflac Cancer Center at Egleston. The nurses and doctors there gave Kristin and us a very precious gift, and for that we could never repay them. Thank you so much, we love you with all our heart and soul, just like Kristin! In July of 2009, Kristins' Cancer came back, bigger, stronger, and more aggressive than before. Still remembering a little of what happened when she was younger, it was to much this time for her to handle. She would tell people she knew, "I have Cancer so people can see the glory of God in my life." She was very strong in her faith, and as hard as it was for her to function, she still put everyone before herself. Never shedding the first tear until she took her last breath. Kristins' ideals and way of life were an inspiration to far more than we know. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face, no matter how much she hurt. She ALWAYS had nice things to say, no matter how sick she was. She taught all of those around her how we should live our lives. Thank you so much sweetheart for the time and love you gave us. Thank you sweety, for all that you taught us. You are, always have been, and always will be, Our Baby Our Angel Our Hero! Love, Mommy & Daddy
