Family and friends of Shannon Zimmerman are uniting to raise money to help in her battle against osteosarcoma. Please show your support!

We lost our beautiful Shannon on August 31, 2011. She showed grace, strength and faith throughout her journey and will be forever loved and missed. She was 34 years old, a loving wife of almost 11 years and a devoted mother of three. Please read her story below as well as the updates for details. We will continue this fundraiser for her family to help during this difficult time.

Those who know and love Shannon Zimmerman are aware that she and her family have had a tough few months since she was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. From day one of the diagnosis, Shannon, a mother of three young children, vowed to fight this cancer like a mama bear protecting her cubs. True to her promise, Shannon is meeting this cancer head on with grace, incredible strength, and most importantly, faith that she will get to the other side of this fight! She has a long road ahead of her, but a wonderful network of support is already proving to be a tremendous help. Cancer doesn't just happen to the cancer patient. This has "happened" to her friends, family, and loved ones too. So many folks are rallying around Shannon and her family and she has already dubbed them "the best prayer team ever"! Please keep praying for Shannon and her entire family everyday.

Shannon and her husband Pat have three beautiful kids - an 8 year-old daughter and twin boys, who turned one year-old in May. As you might imagine, this battle can drain their family both mentally and financially. Shannon is in the fight of her life right now and the mounting medical bills are a worry we would like to help ease. Shannon has had, literally, every possible side effect from the chemo and has landed in the hospital for extended stays between rounds and her first big surgery is right around the corner. We can't change this disease, but we can change how they fight it! Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.

All your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated!!
