Currently Kim is battling NK/T-cell leukemia and an immune disorder called HLH (Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis). The outpouring of support from friends and family has been overwhelming. And amazing. To help keep everyone up to date, I will post updates as often as possible related to Kim's diagnosis, treatment, and her recovery. Meal train and donation information, more information below: https://mealtrain.com/g0593o
Meal Train!! We have some friends that have started a meal train. Kim is still in the hospital (as it write is Thurs, June 2) and could be for at least another week, maybe more depending on how the treatment goes this week and next. For those that would like to help: https://mealtrain.com/g0593o
For those wanting to donate, we do have a GoFund me account set up. https://www.gofundme.com/kimbohlh
All funds donated through this go straight to us to aid in efforts going forward. Because there have been some questions about 'tributes' vs 'donations', from the CaringBridge FAQ:
What is the difference between CaringBridge's Tribute donation and personal fundraisers for my loved one?
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, CaringBridge is not able to redirect donated funds to individuals or their families. This is why we have identified GoFundMe as a trusted resource for personal fundraising (http://caringbridgehelp.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/717
). Any gifts made through GoFundMe go directly to the beneficiary of the fundraiser and are not tax-deductible.
Tribute donations made in honor of a loved one are tax deductible and go directly to CaringBridge to ensure our services remain available for all who need them, plus keep our websites ad-free.
