    Short Folks for Hope Foundation- Supporting the Cancer Community... Family Style! The foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity founded in 2012 by Kristen Short, a singer/songwriter, wife and mother of three young children. After a breast cancer diagnosis in 2010, Kristen and her family were faced with the reality that a cancer journey presents many challenges physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially. Kristen and her family are very grateful to have received free cancer support services from the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing of Lewiston during her cancer treatment and journey to wellness. The foundation's mission is to empower, encourage and celebrate cancer warriors; sponsor/operate the annual Vivian St. Onge Memorial Rickshaw Team Project at the Dempsey Challenge which enables cancer warriors who can't bike the event to participate; raise money and awareness for cancer support care organizations and cancer research; motivate, guide and provide opportunities for youth to be compassionate, creative, hope-fostering members of our communities; and operate the ''Cool Treats for Charity'' frozen treat pushcart business at local events and proceeds benefit the foundation, the Dempsey Center and other charitable efforts and events. The foundation is 100% volunteer-operated with no salaried staff.
