On October 22, 2009, Kim was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 40. We have created this page to help raise funds for her medical bills and living expenses as she is unable to work while receiving treatment.

This is from Kim's Caring Bridge page:

"On October 22, 2009, I received the heart stopping news that I had breast cancer. I say heart stopping because at the age of 40 - with absolutely no history of breast cancer in my family - I assumed my worrying about the worst outcome would be extinguished by a simple call. Unfortunately, it was not - I have breast cancer.

After meetings and procedures with my surgeon and oncologist throughout November, it was determined that I have cancer in both breasts. My lymphnodes my be infected but they will not know until surgery. As such, the doctors determined the plan of attack to be chemotherapy first and a bilateral mastectomy in the spring. Radiation may be needed but that will not be determined until spring.

As such, on December 9 and 11th (my birthday), I began my first round of chemotherapy. According to the plan, I am to have six rounds of chemo and then have surgery. After that comes the new equipment of which I am eagerly awaiting. No need to age gracefully. LOL!!! :)

As I stated in my journal, I am doing fine. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. The love and support have made the difference!!! I won't continue to ramble but please know that I am very blessed to have each of you in my life!!!!! "
