Help reduce Kim's worry about mounting medical bills as she searches for relief from constant pain.

At age 6, on a Christmas visit from Knoxville, TN, to Minnesota, Kim just wanted to see the Glockenspiel in New Ulm, but ended up in the hospital with a broken leg after a car ran over her foot. Many years later, her back pain was traced to a twisted pelvis that could be linked to that car mishap.
In 2007, Kim was pursuing her passion, nursing, by doing prep classes at Pellessippi Community College in Knoxville, when she was forced to drop out of school and quit her job due to severe back pain. By the end of that year and many doctors later, she was totally incapacitated. Kim has not worked or gone to school since, pursuing relief from the constant pain. An MRI showed a bulged disc and pinched nerves in her back with extensive nerve damage in her left leg. Five pain blocks have not helped. Presently, she is pursuing surgery.
With concerned friends and relatives from the farms & lakes of Minnesota to the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee to the bayous of Florida, an on-location -benefit was not possible. Therefore, we give you this opportunity to make a difference in this beautiful young woman's life.
We want to support her financially for medical bills and prayerfully for God's presence and peace, that our care and concern will buoy up her spirit for God's healing to happen. We miss you Kim!
