A collection for Kyle

Kyle loved his collections, especially his collection of money. His eyes sparkled when he'd share his rare coins and bills with anyone who would listen. I think that's why collecting money for pediatric brain tumor research and his friend Dr. Jim Olson, seems like a perfect way to remember him. 

For two years we made trips to Seattle Children's for appointments with Dr. Olson. I can't remember many where Kyle didn't bring something to share with him. His new Poke-e-mon card, his key ring of Husky ticket stubs, his moon shells. But what Kyle shared most freely was himself. He radiated energy and spirit - running and laughing - embodying the phrase "Go big or go home!" He shared that part of himself with Dr. Olson, and with all of us. Now it's time to show Kyle we embody it too. 

Help me honor Kyle, his infectious smile, his competitive spirit, and his love of collecting by donating to team "OOO-UM-GOW-AH" through this page. Together we can show Kyle we remember and we are better for it. 

Thank you for donating to my collection for Kylie. I know he's smiling as he sorts and counts each contribution.

OOO-UM-GOW-AH Kylie's got the POWA!
