“Since that day, my whole life has changed. I’m still me … and I’m still here,”

The community of Help Hope Live client Kristoffer Kristensen came together on Saturday, May 14 for a Hope Travels 5K fundraising event in Kristoffer’s honor. Kristoffer is recovering from a hip and leg amputation due to a rare bone cancer diagnosis in 2020.

“I will become a better person than I was before this happened. I am determined not to give up or give in.”

Hope Travels participants included the Students Moving Against Cancer (SMAC) club at a local high school.

Kristoffer is halfway to his $20,000 goal, which will help bring a critical mobility supply within reach: a motorized scooter so he can fully access his home and community.
