Kim Kim Martin is nearing completion of her elementary education degree at Ball State University and is the mother of five children. With optimism and hope, she and her husband have helped two of their children through three bouts with cancer-each one different, rare, and requiring intense treatments. Being intimately familiar with the ups and downs of helping a toddler, elementary age, and teenage child live with cancer, Kim has chosen to focus on the positive and is using the insights she has gained to encourage and comfort others. Her dream is to bring smiles to the faces of families living with cancer.
