Update on our beloved Kimberly...

This website was created to help lessen the burden of medical bills during the duration of time that Kimberly and James were fighting her battle against cancer at MD Anderson in Houston, TX.

On January 16th Kimberly was to begin her second round of chemotherapy in Houston. When doctors completed Kim’s preliminary medical tests it was found that even with all that had been attempted the aggressive cancer had not decreased but in stead had spread to her lungs. We were told that there was nothing that could be done. We were given merely days to spend with our precious Kimberly.

The doctors at MD Anderson told us that she too sick too travel and they desired to check her into hospice care in Houston. We all rallied together as Kimberly insisted that she be allowed to go home to spend time with her beloved chocolate Lab “Molly Brown”. We all breathed a momentary sigh of relief when dad was able to obtain travel permission from Dr. Fu and obtain a medical flight equipped with a nursing staff. On Friday 1/17 Kimberly, our mom, and James, flew home on a private medical flight with a nurse to retain her vitals. My husband Paul along with and dear friends (Dave, Billy, Dan, and Debbie) set up hospice care at my parent’s house while we awaited Kimberly’s homecoming.

Throughout the long weekend we were all very blessed to have the opportunity to tell Kimberly how much we loved her and say our goodbyes. We lost track at just how many people flooded our house with love and support.

We are all deeply saddened to pass along that in the early morning hours of Tuesday January 18th, 2011 Kimberly lost her battle to cancer. She passed on to be with Jesus while mom and James held her hand. As Kimberly was very close to her grandmother we are knew that Grandma Virginia was there excitingly awaiting her arrival.

We all thank you so much for your cards, gifts, and most importantly prayers during this difficult time. We will keep this website up until 1/31 to help pass along the occurrences of Kimberly’ last days. We will also ask that you continue to help support James and Kimberly as they continue to accrue medical expenses including the private medical flight that helped bring Kimberly home to us.
