Event description

Description

Kim is a local mom who is battling for her life after receiving her 3rd diagnosis with cancer in 6 years. She lives in

Hershey with her husband Bill and their 11 year old son Brandyn. Since Kim’s first diagnosis in 2013, she has continuously endured invasive medical tests, rounds of chemotherapy and countless hours in surgery. Kim’s most recent diagnosis came in 2017 when doctors confirmed stage 4 colon cancer that metastasized to both of her lungs. Her prognosis is terminal and doctors have given Kim an estimated 6 years to live. It has been almost 2 years since her diagnosis and Kim is on a daily chemotherapy regiment to assure she has the most time possible with her family.

As Kim and her family focus on her health, they have also found themselves in a dire financial situation and in need of support. Kim is unable to work due to her treatment and unfortunately her husband’s health has recently kept him from working as well, leaving them with very little income for their family. Despite utilizing local resources, their family finds themselves months behind on rent with no relief in sight.

In an effort to help Kim and her family, members of the Hershey Area Mom’s will be hosting a Family Fall Fest at Camp Catherine (1275 Swatara Road, Hershey, PA 17033) on Sunday, November 10 from 10:00am – 5:00pm. Please plan to join us for a day of fun in support of this deserving family – activities include kids crafts, bounce houses, balloon animals, face painting, vendors, basket raffle, bake sale, food trucks and more! Admission is free, but tickets will be available for cash purchase for each activity.
