The Gearketeers Care Foundation is a charitable organization, dedicated to bringing joy, entertainment, and relief to children and families that suffer from cancer and other adversities. We accomplish this through The Gearketeers Care Package, a pack that we will fill with books, apparel, and more, and send to various hospitals and care facilities around the country. Our Mission Statement: To inspire, enhance, and empower the lives of children, adults, and families effected by cancer and other adversities by delivering the message of joy, strength, love, and hope through “The Gearketeers”.

Kristin Damon would describe herself as a “mother, wifer, author, crafter, baker, designer, zombie slayer, cancer warrior.” Not only was she known her her amazing accomplishments in her life but she was beloved by those she touched with her warm and lovable nature.  When Kristin wasn’t with her family, she was writing. "Aside from my family, writing is my life. It is my favorite pastime, my passion, my calling. I love the escapist qualities of writing, of how it keeps me mentally resilient yet insanely distracted at the same time. I love to live in the alternative worlds I feel when a story comes to fruition. Writing is not for everyone, but it's the only life for me." -Kristin


In November of 2013, Kristin was diagnosed with terminal cancer (Stage 4 Metastatic Colon cancer). At the time of her diagnosis Kristin was a happy, healthy and lively 41 year old. On February 10th, 2016 at the age of 43 Kristin passed away surrounded by heartbroken loved ones that would always feel the void of the warm, witty and wonderful Kristin.
