Welcome to our CaringBridge site for Kristen. Kristen has always been a very healthy, fun loving person. Anyone that knows her knows that her personality and smile can light up a room. Since being home from Europe she started to experience some stomach pains. After going to several doctors at home, she finally arrived in Santa Barbara where she was diagnosed with lymphoma on June 1. We've created this site to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support, words of hope and encouragement and prayers during this time when it matters most.
