I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Right Breast Cancer. There were many unforeseen financial obstacles. Kimberly's Touch took the time to listen to my story, show compassion and assisted me financially. This helped relieve me of a lot of my stress while healing physically from chemo, surgery and radiation.Ms. Simmons

When my partner of nearly 3 decades was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, we were both frightened and did not know what to expect during treatments. Kimberly's Touch provided us both with much emotional support and comfort. Kimberly is an absolute angel and she works hard to provide for patients who might otherwise not find the resources they need. She takes each patient into her care just as if they were her own mother or father. I cannot say enough good things about her organization

Kimberly's Touch is such an amazing organization. I was involved with Kimberly's Touch from the onset and to say the founder is an angel is an understatement. She is very passionate about this organization and puts 110% into everything she does. I have seen amazing things come to fruition since Kimberly's Touch was established and I see amazing things in their future. If you are a cancer patient and in need of assistance, don't hesitate to reach out.

Kimberly's Touch has been a great support for my partner and I. They have provided great emotional support and other assistance to help us through our tough times. Thanks to their never ending support we have become volunteers to show appreciation as well as to help other cancer patients through their tough times.

I actually met Kimberly Waters-Washington, the Founder and Executive Director through a Facebook Breast Cancer Survivor Group while I was in quarantine during the pandemic. we began talking, and I was immediately hooked. She was warm, engaging and very loving. She went from wanting to assist me to allowing me the privilege of helping her. I am honored to say that she has been a powerhouse along with the other Board members. I was intrigued because I hadn't heard of too many organizations like this made up of cancer survivors helping other cancer patients. She has been instrumental in introducing me to Maria, another Board Member, who has been an inspiration to me personally as we both go through our journey of cancer. This organization has been beneficial to me in keeping me from giving up while I am being treated for cancer.

I have been affiliated with Kimberly's Touch since the very beginning. I started off as the President of the nonprofit but after the first year I had to step down due to my own Cancer battle, that started in 2018! Since Kimberly's Touch conception and my Cancer battle began I have never once ever needed anything that they didn't see to it that I got!
The Director/Founder Kimberly has been a shining star in my life every since! These are a group of the most driven enthusiastic group of people I've ever seen, always looking to find another way to help Cancer patients and their families in anyway that they can! I actually nick named Kimberly "the Energizer Bunny." She would just never stop! This nonprofit has and always will be very close to my heart and since my Cancer has now returned for the 3rd time, I know if at any point If I need anything They'll be there for me! I look forward to continuously watching Kimberly's Touch grow event more so than it already has! You guys are an exceptional group of people doing great things! I love you all!

Kimberly was on my Husband’s care team for 3+ years where he received his Chemotherapy treatments! She always had a special way of making him laugh and smile, even at a very difficult time in his journey. Kindness and compassion is so incredibly important to a patient and their family. We were so excited about Kimberly starting this organization to help others like him. She is truly and amazing woman, giving of her time and giving the help to those truly in need it! So grateful for beautiful souls like her with a passion to give! Thank you so much Kimberly for what you have done and continue to do for others!

Kimberly’s Touch is a great organization. I use to volunteer at the beginning. The founder is very passionate about helping Cancer patients. She believes their should be resources for all cancers.
The pandemic hasn’t stopped her at all, she seek ways to bring in funding to fulfill the Mission.
She has spent sleepless night designing clothes to sell to also help fund the organization. Her heart ❤️ is pure and she loves giving back.
She’s a 10 year survivor herself.

The first thing I noticed about Kimberly is that kindness is first. After that comes her incredible drive to further the cause of helping cancer patients. I have asked her many times where she gets the energy to do what she does but she just laughs and says she is motivated by helping others. We started as business partners but became friends.

Here's what she did last year: assisted 52 patients with housing, utilities, gas gift cards for transportation, groceries, lodging, served 18 hungry families during the winter holidays, and Covid did not stop them from holding a fundraiser. Oh yes, she has a food pantry too.
