On April 16, 2009, Kim Hamer watched her 44-yr-old husband take his last breath. Their children were 12, 9 and 7 at the time. While her husband had cancer and after he died, Kim was blown away by the creative and thoughtful ways their friends and co-workers supported them. She started calling these kind actions “acts of love” because that is what they felt like.
Wanting to show others how easy and impactful these acts of love are, Kim wrote 100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving Your Friend through Cancer or Loss and launched 100ActsofLove.com, with a mission to help people and companies connect when cancer strikes.
Kim is a professional speaker, writer and blogger. She lives in Los Angeles and tries not to bother her relatively well-behaved college-aged children.
