Kim's medical fund to fight ALS
Hi my name is Tammy Caughill, I'm happily married with 3 children & own my own independant business.
(BUT THIS IS NOT MY STORY)
I'd like to introduce you to a very special friend of mine "Kim" who in February 2016 was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. This disease is the most devastating disease because it slowly robs you of all your voluntary muscles as it attacks the nervous system leaving one debilitated.
About my friend Kim Lewis:
Kim just celebrated her 45th birthday, she is a happily married women to her best friend and soul mate Spencer Lewis, blessed with 2 beautiful & healthy children; Tommy 20 and Danielle 18.
Kim is a beautiful, blonde british bombshell, vibrant with a personality larger then life.
Kim loves to spend time with family & friends, she loves to dance, shop & travel to England. Her celebrity crush is Robbie Williams!!!
Since Kim's diagnoses, her disease has left her unable to enjoy most of the things she loves.
One of the hardest things for Kim is the inability to speak to her loved ones.
Kim & her family are devasted with the affects of ALS but are trying their best to stay positive and fight it.
Kim's husband Spencer is self employed. He has no benefits to help with the financial needs, the travelling & medical expenses. Spencer must continue working hard to pay the bills, keep his company going & yet be there also for Kim's needs.
This disease with it's fast progression has left Kim unable to help Spencer in their business & care for her family the way shes done in the past.
This alone is heartbreaking for Kim.
I'm asking for your financial support to help Kim, Spencer, Tommy & Danielle.
There are many needs for the home, in care visits, drives to Toronto, medical bills, supplies, accessories to accommodate Kim in her condition.
This is to much for 1 family to ever have to bare.
Some of us are so blessed to have our health so we may not even be able to phathom what the Lewis family is going through. I pray for them daily, they are the most wonderful friends. I'm so blessed to have met them!
They've lived here in Canada for 9 years now away from most all of their famliy in England. Kim has 1 brother living her also (Peter) who loves & adores her.
I'd be forever grateful as is the Lewis Family if you could just find in your hearts to help my friends out in any way. I pray your blessings will be 3 fold by your donations. Life is short, unpredictable and sometimes just not fair. If there is only 1 thing we can do it's to help others.
Thank you. God Bless.

From the bottom of my heart,
To all who have donated to date, every little bit helps & every dollar adds up. The amount given is not key but it's what is given from the heart. You have no idea how much this means to the Lewis Family to see how much they are loved. They need our support in every way & we must continue to cover them in prayers. Thank you so much. God Bless!
