When Kristen was
two years old, she was diagnosed with pleuropulmonary blastoma
(PPB) which is a rare childhood cancer occurring in the chest,
specifically in the lungs or in the coverings of the lungs.
After being treated at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Kristen
was in remission for four years.
In the summer of
2012 Kristen’s family was devastated to learn that she had
another rare form of cancer – which resulted in the removal of
her left eye. Seven-year-old Kristen participates in ballet. She
is a very loving, vibrant child.
Thanks to the generosity of a charitable child, Mia, who helped
raise money for the Pure Imagination program through by selling
holiday themed chocolate lollipops and Nutcracker ornaments –
Kristen, was able to experience an exclusive adventure to see
The Nutcracker at The Fox Theatre.
