The Kimberly Fund Application 2019
Kim Troisi-Paton was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in May of 2005 and threw herself into educating about colorectal cancer (CRC). After being featured in the 2007 Colondar, Kim realized that The Colon Club shared her passion to educate young adults that colorectal cancer can happen to ANYONE at ANY time!
In December of 2006, Kim was diagnosed with an aggressive recurrence, but it didn’t seem to slow her down at all. While going through chemo, she worked tirelessly being an amazing wife, mother, attorney and author. After a 2 1/2 year battle with colon cancer, Kim passed away on August 10, 2007.
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.
Give children, whose parent or primary caregiver is currently being treated for or has lost a parent or primary caregiver to colorectal cancer, a chance to put the cancer aside, even just for a moment, and be a kid again!
