Kimberly's fundraising page for Team Sharing Hope
As many of you know my dear sister, Shannon Bruce, passed away on February 25, 2022. She always told me I was the Wind beneath her Wings. If there is any truth to that statement I hope to remain that wind by continuing to carry on her legacy of Hope that a cure for brain tumors can be found. This year marks our 16th fundraising event. Actually our 17th, because in 2018 we participated in both the Ft. Worth and Denver NBTS Brain Tumor Walks.
I had a very courageous and faith filled sister. I remain in awe of how she battled her brain cancer and how she became an advocate for the fight against brain tumors. She participated in this Brain Tumor Walk every year since her surgery, including in 2007 while she was still in treatment. She sincerely believed that her tumor was a tool in helping her find her calling to work as an advocate to fundraise and to contribute to the development of more effective treatments and the search for a cure for brain tumors.
As I try to match her courage and faith, I realize what a giant task it is. However, I will do the very best I can to become a reflection of the spirit of my sister. I can only hope to embody her ever grateful heart and her unending service to others not only as a fundraiser for brain tumors, but also in everyday life. No one ever met my sister and was unchanged by her.
So, I will borrow some sentiment from the lyrics of the song For Good from the musical Wicked and say..
So much of me is made of what I learned from Shannon. And she will be with me like a handprint on my heart. Whatever way our stories end, I know she has rewritten mine by being my best friend and sister. Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better, but because I knew her, I have been changed for good.
Please join me in this fight. If you are able, please make a donation in support of the efforts of Team Sharing Hope. If you are not able to make a donation, I ask for your prayers for a successful event.
