Kimmie is 13 years old, but she has the cognitive abilities of a six year old. Why? Because she has Dravet Syndrome. Nevertheless, she is playful, charming, sweet, kind, caring, and has the spirit of the Lord with her all the time. I love this girl. I really do.
So, as a favor to her mom, Kris Hansen, I made a couple of videos about Kimmie. The first is a bit about her, and the second is her wish for the "Make a Wish Foundation." Yes, her case of Dravet Syndrome is severe enough that we don't know how much longer she will be with us.
I remember that day, when Kris told me the news - Kimmie's prognosis. I tried so hard to look strong for Kris, but later on I just cried and cried. I love my sweet BFF, I love Kimmie. I don't want her to leave. But after general conference today, I was comforted and I realized that the only thing I can do is take comfort in the faith that I have that no matter what, our Heavenly Father will be with her, at her side or watching over her.
Until then, the only way I know how to help her (since there isn't a cure for Dravet Syndrome) is to make these videos and share them with the world and hope that the "Make a Wish Foundation" sees it. I know it is a big wish to ask for, but Kimmie is a priceless young lady - especially to those who know her.
If you would like to find out more information on how you can help, please email Kimmie's mom, Kris, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
