Kim Beauchamp has had an active role in the childhood cancer community since 2016 when her cousin's daughter Kira--who she affectionately refers to as her niece--was diagnosed with DIPG. Kim founded the Making DIPG History project in 2017 to help raise funds for treatment and to bring DIPG into the public eye by sharing the stories of children affected by this devastating tumor. Kim is currently writing a Mexican cookbook inspired by her time in Mexico with Kira and other children who sought treatment there. The book is intended as a thank you to the people who opened their hearts and homes to the families and will aim to raise money for DIPG research and continue spreading awareness and honor the children who've bravely battled DIPG. Kim holds a doctoral degree in naturopathic medicine from Bastyr University (Seattle, WA) and works as a Writing Specialist for Northeastern University. She enjoys creating new recipes and learning about traditional Mexican cooking methods, reading, camping with her family, and traveling.
