Kimmi’s Sunflower Fund was established by Kimberly Slater in her estate planning and facilitated by her family to honor individuals who battle Sturge-Weber syndrome and seek the best medical care and attention. Kim was a fantastic Sturge-Weber syndrome Warrior who passed away after a valiant fight against cancer. She was a highly effective advocate for patient empowerment and an unending source of hope and inspiration! Kim always had a kind word to say and a luminous smile. She loved sunflowers and Broadway and never missed a chance to attend whenever time and health permitted. Kim was indefatigable until the end and overcame all odds as she had done all her life with her loving and supportive family, who always cheered her on in her endeavors and health issues.
