The Powell Moms Group had a wonderful and dear member, Amy Hartman, who lost her 5 year battle to cancer in early September this year. Amy was diagnosed with colon cancer in her 9th month of pregnancy with her only child Addie in 2009. Unfortunately, the cancer spread to her liver. In an effort to stop the spread, Amy underwent major surgery in 2013 to remove her gallbladder and spleen. She continued treatment but sadly lost her courageous battle.

Amy was an avid scrapbooker. She was so passionate about scrapbooking that many friends said she was recording everything for Addie knowing she would not be there to reminisce with her. Addie is continuing in her mom's footsteps by preserving all her memories of her mommy through scrapbooking.

Amy’s incredible strength to cope with the inevitable was truly amazing. Despite her own struggles, Amy cared for and gave to everyone around her. Her main concerns were Addie and Scott, but she was also worried about her parents. Amy was always concerned with their needs even when when she had so much going on with her own health struggles and personal needs. It is undeniable Amy was always giving whenever/wherever she could. Amy’s kindness was truly remarkable and we are so fortunate to have known a remarkable wife, mother, daughter, and friend.

 

As her friends, we are asking you to keep Amy’s memory alive by giving back. Specifically, we are asking you to give to her daughter's future in Amy’s honor. All money that is raised will go to Addie's College fund.  Amy would have been over the moon just knowing friends, family, and strangers would remember her through the support of raising money for her sweet daughter’s college fund.

Addie is an active and sweet 5 year old. She loves painting, coloring, and of course the movie Frozen:) She says she wants to be a doctor when she grows up. Maybe because she has spent many hours visiting hospitals and watching Doctors help those in need as well as seeing her daddy and home nurses take care of her mom over the past 5 years. Lastly, Addie loves to visit the zoo and vacation at Hilton Head as these are special places she went with her mommy. Visiting these fun places often, will certainly bring back enjoyable memories for sweet Addie for years to come.

We are asking you to please take a moment and donate to Addie’s future college fund. With a huge part of her life missing and most recently turned upside down, raising money for Addie’s college is one thing The Powell Mom’s Club can do to give back and alleviate this burden for the family. By getting Addie started with a college fund, together we can take away a little worry from this amazing little girl and make her mother, Amy, a proud momma! Thank you so much for your consideration and donation. The family will appreciate your kindness more than you will ever know!
