This weeks Superhero Spotlight goes out to Kim Hansard. Many of you in the Knoxville area know her from Star 102.1 and the hit morning radio show, Marc & Kim in the Morning. I have gotten to know her through her valiant and successful battle against breast cancer.
I will never forget when I first met Kim in person. She was so bright and full of energy that it was contagious. I could see immediately why she was so popular with so many people, because you felt as if you knew her after her only five minutes. We met through Twitter when I was doing a quick fundraiser for breast cancer awareness.
Kim is somebody who found her true identity as a Superhero as a mother to one, a wife to one, and an inspiration to many through her battle. she continued to work hard, be a phenomenal mother to a child she adopted and brought in to be her own, and did what she could to advocate for other breast cancer fighters.
Kim is proof that being a Superhero to so many doesn’t come from what you have, what you do, or where you are, but who you are when you need a Superhero for yourself. She proved to be that I can be my own Superhero, and I will be forever grateful for that.
Kim, you continue to capture the region with your voice, but you will always be known for capturing the world with you fight against breast cancer.
