Having survived a rare form of bone cancer in his teenage years, Sharp also became actively involved in the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He also wrote an inspirational book about his experience, and occasionally toured the United States as a motivational speaker.
Kevin died due to ongoing complications from past stomach surgeries and digestive issues.
It is requested that if anyone would like to make a donation in Kevin's memory, that donations be made to the closest Make A Wish Chapter in the donor's area so that wishes can continue to be granted for other children. Few artists, let alone people, have ever dedicated themselves to a cause like Sharp did for children's cancer advocacy and Make-a-Wish.
A Memorial Service celebrating Kevin’s life is being planned in Nashville, Tennessee. More information will be posted on Kevin’s website in the near future.
If you would like to share your memories of Kevin, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
