Five-year old Kimberly was just an infant when she was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis – a chronic lung disease that she will battle her entire life. After receiving her diagnosis, the family moved to Seattle briefly before returning to northern Nevada and a climate that seemed to help Kimberly breathe better.
Still, every three months or so, Kimberly gets sick and needs to be hospitalized.
Like many girls her age, Kimberly likes music and dancing and loves Minnie Mouse.
Kimberly is back in the hospital this week and we invite you to #TweetTheLove to brighten her day. Send @RenownScribbles your tweets with the hashtag #TweetTheLove or leave your message on our Facebook page and we’ll share your note with Kimberly and her family and others in need of a smile.
You can send in hopeful wishes, corny jokes, uplifting quotes – anything that might help bring a laugh or a feeling of comfort. Just remember to include the hashtag #TweetTheLove so we can find your messages.
Check back as we introduce you to a new child each week in February.
