On April 16, 2009, Kim Hamer watched her 44-yr-old husband take his last breath. Their children were 12, 9, and 7 at the time. While her husband had cancer and after he died, they were amazed and humbled by the creative and thoughtful ways their friends, family, and co-workers supported them. Kim started calling these kind actions "acts of love."
Wanting to show others how impactful and meaningful acts of love are, Kim wrote 100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving Your Friend through Cancer or Loss and launched 100ActsofLove.com. Kim currently supports HR leaders and managers in building support strategies that support employees affected by cancer or other health crises.
Kim is a business owner, professional speaker, and blogger who lives in Los Angeles. She tries not to bother her relatively well-behaved college-aged children.
