Salyers Family: Wausau, Wisconsin
Kimberly Salyers was selected for this award for her strength and selflessness while facing the devastating loss of her son. In 2010, Kim’s son, Noah, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at the age of eight years old. He underwent countless surgeries and four rounds of chemotherapy. In November of 2017, they learned that Noah’s tumor had doubled in size in just three short months. After a biopsy of the tumor, they discovered mutated cells that would continue the growth of the tumor at a rapid rate. With treatment no longer a viable option, Kim and her husband, Erick, entered Noah into hospice care. Noah passed away on March 25, 2018.
“Kim Salyers is someone who has strived to maintain a positive environment for Noah and the rest of her family and needs a hand up. The goal of this award is to alleviate some of the financial burden that has been placed on Salyers and her family since this terrible event.”
