(HOUSTON)– She is a mother, wife and president of her own foundation and a four time victim of cancer. Now her foundation is raising money to help other cancer victims.
The Jamie’s Hope foundation is named after Jamie Gilmore, 32. The proceeds support target therapy research at MD Anderson, which benefit patients battling rare cancers like Acinic Cell Carcinoma, the cancer attacking Gilmore for the fourth time.
Her life-long friend, Amanda Abiasi, says the foundation uses Gilmore’s disease as a channel to help ease the day to day struggles of others with cancer. As the executive director for Jamie’s Hope, Abiasi takes pride easing family’s lives through the foundation during these tough times with events like River Oaks Mascaraed Gala, Angel Troop Project, and Annual Golf Tournament for a Cure.
Jamie’s a true fighter in spite of cancer’s emotional roller coaster. Her ultimate dream is to leave a legacy to her daughter, Mikala,12, who is her inspiration to survive.
