Jamie's Wish Foundation was started in honor of Jamie Barkes Pursley. Jamie died of metastatic breast cancer in March of 2011. She was just 3_ years old. She was a wife, mother, daughter, sister. A dear friend.
When Jamie knew there was nothing else doctors could do for her, she turned her focus to helping others. Just before she died she asked her friends, "Please redo the infusion suite." It was her last wish.
Almost a year to the day of her passing, Jamie's wish came true. The infusion suite at Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Lawrence, KS was completely renovated.
It was where Jamie spent hours of her day receiving chemotherapy. Jamie wanted it to be an updated, comfortable space for patients, their friends and family. That's the kind of person she was. Generous, kind and thoughtful.
