Kim was diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin’s lymphoma at only 30 years young.
Lymphoma is a form of cancer that affects the immune system - specifically, it is a cancer of immune cells called lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell. Lymphocytes are in the lymph nodes and other lymphoid tissue.Kim has begun chemo treatments already and will continue to do so for the next 6 months. Donations can be used immediately and throughout the duration of her care (Chemo drip every 2 weeks for 4-6 months and then go from there). The money raised will help give Kim the best fighting chance and will be used to help pay medical expenses. "Cancer does not have a face until it's yours or someone you know." Her support system is massive, and the light of her soul lights up our lives
As Kim manages here energy levels from day to day, things may change a little (or a lot), and that is OK. You are all lovely people, (both family and friends) and you are as well intentioned as you are thoughtful and caring. There will be times when a quiet, private atmosphere (for treatments, at home, via text message, etc...) may be requested on Kim's behalf. She will KNOW you are quietly supporting her in solidarity and daily smiles during these times and your help in creating this serenity for her is essential, and greatly appreciated!
