-Founders, Heather & Kinsey
As the best of friends for over 25 years, we’ve become family, we share nearly everything, but we never thought we would share this. Only months apart both of our families were up against an inconceivable battle: Terminal Cancer.
In 2020 Kinsey’s father, Kenna, was diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer + had an inoperable tumor. Through months of unsuccessful treatment, Kenna’s health quickly declined. Months later Kenna lost his battle to Pancreatic Cancer. Kinsey lost her father; Heather saw her best friend go through devastating grief.
Months later, in 2021 Heather’s mom, Doreen was diagnosed with Grade IV Glioblastoma Multiforme, the deadliest form of brain cancer. Now nearing a year and a half into Doreen’s fight, it has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. Doreen is currently doing well + fighting this battle as hard as she can.
During an unimaginable time of grief, sadness, + fear for anyone going through this, what are the odds that Kinsey + Heather would be experiencing this together? They continue to grieve the loss of Kinsey’s father + are faced with the unknowns in the battle Heather’s mom is fighting, but are determined to turn their grief into good.
Through their research + dedication to learning more about Pancreatic Cancer and Glioblastoma Multiforme patients, they have realized what is needed more than ever is financial support provided to medical teams pushing the envelope to advance research opportunities. Funding for these research opportunities will produce better understanding of these diseases which could in turn provide new treatment options, earlier diagnosis, a better quality of life, more time, + hope.
Together they have created Play for Purple + Grey; a fundraiser that will continue to financially support foundations who provide funding for research. These foundations support doctors + medical teams who are research leaders for Pancreatic Cancer + Glioblastoma Multiforme.
