|Kari Clark grew up in Forsyth County, Georgia. She married Matt Clark, a Forsyth County firefighter, in 2004. They live in Cumming with their three girls; Libby, Jayne and Callie. In 2013, just after her third baby was born, Kari was diagnosed with an aggressive triple negative breast cancer and a reoccurring cancer in 2016 that she is still fighting. She is currently receiving treatment at Cancer Treatment Center of America in Newnan, Georgia. Kari is such a positive person that rarely complains. We remain hopeful for complete healing for Kari! |
|On August 27, 2019, Matt's truck was stolen while Kari was receiving an infusion at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Newnan, GA. Along with the truck, the thieves also stole many valuable and sentimental items that were in the truck. This was just another setback for the Clark family and very discouraging.
As you can imagine, years of fighting for health and for their family has caused great emotional, physical and financial strain. The love of their community at this time is an overwhelming blessing.
Please consider racing, donating, or volunteering to help support this very deserving family! |
