This tree is in memory of Kristen Herrera-Hixson.
Kristen Herrera-Hixson was born January 20, 1980, in the city of San Jose, California. Kristen was a proud mother of three; at her passing her children's ages were 2, 9, & 14 years old. She was a devoted mother, wife, daughter, grand-daughter, sister, niece, cousin & friend.
In June of 2009, Kristen was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. She was a fighter and fought a strong battle to the end, never ever giving up hope for a chance to live. Kristen lost her fight in April 2011. In her short life she touched many people and will be forever missed.
In her honor and her memory KristenzKure will continue her battle through a non-profit organization committed to raising public awareness of cervical cancer caused by HPV (human papillomavirus), supporting the fighters, admiring the survivors, and remembering those who have lost their lives to cancer.
Cervical Cancer is preventable. Our goal is to educate and advocate, in hopes to find a cure.
