Kristen's Story

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.
