Kim’s Story

Welcome to Kim's CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Kim, and to share with others our hope in Christ.


Thank you for taking the time to visit, and thank you for your prayers.  Your notes of love and encouragement are greatly appreciated.


On Tuesday, April 14, 2009, Kim discovered a lump in her left breast that a biopsy would later reveal as cancerous.  After six months of chemo, a lumpectomy was performed in October 2009 at M. D. Anderson in Houston, Texas.  Six weeks of radiation followed that procedure.

On December 21, 2010, Kim went to Round Rock Medical Center for her quarterly mammogram.  Three spots were discovered and her radiologist recommended a biopsy.  Pathology results indicated that Kim's cancer had returned and she underwent several surgeries, reconstructions, and another 6 months of chemo in 2011.  On April 18, 2012 another round of scans revealed that the cancer had moved to her lungs, and Kim is now Stage IV and undergoing clinical trials at the START Center for Cancer Care in San Antonio, Texas.  For the third time in 5 years, Kim is staring down a cancer diagnosis as our little family seeks shelter at the foot of the Cross.  But even in this valley, we know the Lord will provide everything we need, whether sweet or bitter, and He will withhold no good thing that will ultimately be for our good and His glory.


We humbly proclaim--God is enough.  He is good and He will satisfy us through this pain--and we will treasure Him above all things.

Whom have I in heaven but You?  And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.--Psalm 73:25-26


Yes, God is good, and may our lives and this journey make much of Him...

Kim's scans came back as "stable"--no growth and no spread. As a result, Kim will stay with her current regimen which includes chemo every other week, then being fitted for a chemo pump for 72 hours.

Thank you all for your kind words and prayers.

Blessings...

Good news, even though it may not be what we hoped for. Sometimes God's answer is "Wait", and in the meantime we will continue to pray to slay the beast. Have a great holiday with your wonderful family, and may you all feel the peace and joy of this special season.
