Join me on the V Foundation team!

Thank you so much for your interest in this year's Major Challenge to Bump Out Cancer! Two years ago, we started The Challenge to raise money for the V Foundation in support of cancer research to honor one of our own, Kimberly Major. Kimberly was a long-time member of The Colorado Ski and Snowboard Meetup group, and was frequently on The Steamboat Winter's Eve trips. About five years ago Kimberly was diagnosed with stage four cervical cancer, a fairly rare cancer with a very high mortality rate. She began a long courageous battle with the evil C word. She came out of her first round of chemo treatments in remission, a minor miracle, but the cancer came back a mere 6 months later. A second round of chemo treatments was unsuccessful. She was then accepted into a clinical trial, but complications from the cancer prevented her from starting and she was left with no further treatment options. She succumbed to the disease within one year.

Kimberly lived her entire life to the fullest, traveling the world and maximizing relationships with family and friends. Even with cancer, she continued to ski and travel a lot, including such trips as the Greek isles, Chile, Iceland, skiing in Europe, a couple of cruises, two trips to Cedar Point amusement park to ride roller coasters, and several trips home to Texas to enjoy time with family and friends. She maximized her time until she passed on September 2, 2016, when her bright shining star twinkled its last time.

Kimberly found great inspiration in Jimmy V's incredible message, and we know that the V Foundation is where she would have liked us to concentrate our efforts. Please join us in our mission to fund grants to bump out cancer.
