Kimberly Mitchell's Memorial

$10,615 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 122 people in 7 months
Created July 20, 2017
Over a decade ago, Kimberly was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Kimberly was a single mom with two pre-teen aged kids, and she decided that she was not going to let cancer take her down. She was told by many Oncologist's early on that she would not see her kids grow up. But Kimberly being the stubborn fighter she is, was able to see both her kids graduate high school and go on to college. She was truly a miracle. 


While she was fighting her own cancer, she raised her kids as a single mom, helped countless people gain sobriety, worked as a woman's advocate, worked in the substance abuse field, and helped others through their own battles with cancer. Kimberly was a symbol of hope for anyone that was struggling, always ready to lend help, compassion, and strength to anyone that needed it.



Kimberly was in remission for three years up until this past winter. This past reoccourance spread fast and with already compromised lungs, it was nearly impossible for her to recover. She passed on July 19, 2017 at 2:50 pm. Kimberly will be remembered as a bright shining beacon of love and warmth to anyone that had the pleasure of knowing her.

Kimberly leaves behind her two beautiful kids, Trevor and Carly, who she loved with all her heart. She also leaves behind two rescue dogs - Lily and Morrison - and two cats - Marmalade and Gracie - who she adored.  


Being that Trevor and Carly do not have much blood family left, receving any support from their "chosen" family and friends would be extremely helpful. All donations will go towards cremation costs, Kimberly's final wish for a "big fucking party with drag queens and mariachi," and any expenses to help Trevor and Carly to get back on their feet. 


Any remaining donations will go towards research on lung cancer and the genetic therapy drugs Kimberly relied on to help her raise her beautiful children. Trevor and Carly want to emphasise their mother's passion for helping others and supporting organizations such as  https://www.lungevity.org who have the best interest at heart.

Thank you so so much for everyones continual support. Kimberly was so loved and cherished as a member of her community and I know she would be overwhelmed with the support that has been shown to her family.

As Kimberly dealt with cancer for over a decade, it can obviously be a financial drain. Unfortunately there are so many costs associated with illness, hospitals, etc. Kimberly was so generous and gave to others even when she had little herself. Raising money for the family will help to cover final arrangements as well as medical costs that accrued during the last few months of her illness.

Please continue sharing and asking others to read her story and share so we can spread Kimberlys spirit!
