"The Kimberly Fund"

Postby Colon Girl » Thu Oct 20, 2016 11:25 am


Know a child (<18) that has recently lost a parent or caregiver to colorectal cancer or whose parent or giver is currently in treatment? Check out "The Kimberly Fund" - grants established to provide selected applicants the opportunity to take a vacation with their parent, purchase a toy or game, have an experience they weren't able to have due to their parents cancer.

Kim Troisi-Paton was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in May of 2005 and in December of 2006, Kim was diagnosed with a recurrence. After being featured in the 2007 Colondar, Kim realized that The Colon Club shared her passion to educate young adults and that colorectal cancer can happen to ANYONE at ANY time!

Kim passed away on August 10, 2007 after a 2 1/2 year battle with colorectal cancer. The Kimberly Fund was established by Kim’s family and friends as a way to honor her memory. There are no words to express how much she is missed, and how, through the Kimberly Fund, her spirit and dedication will live on.

Children, with the help of a parent or guardian can fill out the following application. Applications are reviewed quarterly (March, June, Sept. Dec.).


Thank you for your support !
