Kim Holford Argo was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocitic Leukemia in 1999. Her diagnosis and ensuing treatment mark a truly frightening time in her life. Any yet, if you ask her, she wouldn't change a thing. "Cancer was a horrible experience to go through, but it is one that I do not regret because it made me who I am today. It has made me want to give back and help others." Kim's desire to "give back" was, in part, due to the concern and generosity shown by the Friendship Foundation. "I remember being so overjoyed when they announced how much had been raised on my behalf. My parents were crying with joy because we had been struggling with doctor bills. And then after the tournament was over, one of the teams came up to me and gave me the door prize they had won : $100 worth of mint Sacagawea coins! I still have them to this day." Kim's experience is not unique. Ours is an organization that understands that a message of support, a word of concern, a sincere touch are all just as important as the money we raise. Having Kim as our first recipient to go on to become a member of our committee is only improving our ability to deliver the message of humanity as well as the financial contribution.
