About The Kristen
The Kristen Renee Foundation is a charitable organization in memory of Kristen Renee. Kristen who died at the age of 30 on April 30, 2008 after a difficult battle with brain cancer. Kristen was a beloved mother, daughter, sister, wife, and friend. Through this foundation the family and friends of Kristen carry on the battle against cancer, against poverty, and provide relief in times of disaster.
Kristen was the most beautiful person on the inside as well as the outside. She was first a wonderful mother to her two children, Drew & Emma, who were her pride and joy, the love of her life. Kristen was also a very thoughtful, caring daughter and a protecting big sis to her younger siblings. Kristen had an unforgettable smile, it would light up any room, and it was usually followed by a contagious laugh, one that carried a cute little snort. Everyday was a new day for new experiences, new love and new friendship. Kristen fought for the underdog, she was fearless in life. We never saw anything ever shake her faith or strength, not even the day she was diagnosed with a malignant Brain Tumor. For 28 years Kristen lived as a loved daughter, an extraordinary mother, a wonderful sister, and a best friend. The last 2 years of her life she lived as our hero. We have never admired the strength and courage of any person as we did Kristen’s.
While taking on chemo, radiation and multiple surgeries to “cure” her brain tumor, she still asked everyone else if they were "ok", she still wore her beautiful smile, and still granted us the joy of hearing her laughter. Kristen stayed true to herself through her greatest adversity and struggles in life. Cancer may have taken her physical body, but it never took her spirit, her smile, her laughter… she beat cancer. We are so proud of Kristen Renee, and she will always be our hero… Through her foundation, her family hopes to help find cures for cancer, fund research for those cures,and encourage other families effected by cancer. Kristen's foundation will remain as a light of hope to anyone in need.
