Kimber-Leigh’s battle with cancer started when she was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer that started with a tumor in her foot. She was treated and the tumor removed. Unfortunately the cancer returned and an amputation of her foot was done, after which she was declared cancer free. A short time later Kimber-Leigh received the news that the battle was on again, with her 3rd cancer diagnosis in 5 years. At this time, The Pink Wig Foundation was able to help fund Kimber-Leigh. The oral chemo taken at this phase had been effective in shrinking the tumors and she had been enjoying the convenience of being able to take it at home and spend more time with her partner, Tyler. Unfortunately, Cancer can be relentless and unpredictable and things took a turn for the worse. Kimber-leigh lost her battle with cancer shortly after she was able to attend the Pink Wig Gala in 2016. She is dearly missed by her family in Regina and everyone at The Pink Wig Foundation. Her family continues to fundraise in Regina in her honour, and often express their gratitude for the generosity of Pink Wig donors as it greatly helped ease the stress of her battle. We’ll miss you Kim!
