Christi Thomas showed the world how to live life to the fullest against all odds.  She not only exemplified how to live with cancer, but she taught us all how to live with dignity, grace and honor. We hope the projects/events of the Memorial Fund will capture the remarkable spirit of a little girl, named Christi, whose determination inspires so many.

Christi's journey was, and continues to be, documented by her family through her website and online Blog. Together, these sites tell the amazing story of one little girl's four-year long battle against a rare form of childhood cancer called neuroblastoma.

In Christi's memory, every year since her death, we have awarded thousands of dollars to students to continue their education. After careful thought and deliberation, I've decided to no longer do this. While most would not know, nor would I want anyone to even imagine, it is deeply painful and downright gut wrenching for me each spring reading all of the applicants' portfolios and knowing I am only doing this because of all Christi endured including her death. I don't mean to disappoint anyone. I am sorry. Please know we will continue to be generous, but in other ways of our choosing. I appreciate your respect.

With gratitude,
Angela (Christi's mom)
