Kristi Eytchison lives in Pendleton with her husband and two sons. Both she and her husband grew up in the small community and love sharing traditions with their boys. Kristi is an established hair stylist at a local salon, Serendipity. She enjoys being outdoors, baking with her sons, and crafting when she gets the time. Like everyone, family is very important to her; raising two boys there is never a dull moment and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Kristi’s oldest son was diagnosed with brain cancer in the fall of 2012 and in February of 2014 he was in remission. Those 15 months were a whirlwind and she couldn’t have done it without her family and friends. The support her family received and love that her son was shown; her gratitude and faith continued to grow as well as her passion to give back. Kristi’s goal with INCourage is to raise awareness and bring the community together to support local families impacted by childhood cancer.
