Help Kim Get Back on Her Feet!
My friend Kim Kunkel really needs some help right now. It has always been difficult for Kim to ask for assistance but she is finally saying uncle. She was recently hospitalized for surgery/amputation on one foot due to diabetes.
She filed for social security/Medicare last year and when she went to check the status pre-hospital visit, she learned her application had not been processed even though she had the required confirmation number. The morning of the hospital visit she re-filed. At the moment she’s without insurance.
Kim has devoted the last 25 years serving the community as a massage therapist providing nurturing healing to many. She is a supporter of the arts, an incredible friend and a cheerleader for all of us. I can attest to this personally-- for many years she has encouraged me, supported my projects and performances, and given me the most healing massages.
Currently she’s out of commission and ready to get back to work when released by the doctor. The healing will take some. A little financial assistance would help bridge the gap to pay for medical expenses.
Thank you so much for any help you can offer. I know from my own experience that when we come together to help that this loving kindess of community greatly aids the healing process.
I heard from Kim. She's in a rehab place now, slowly working on literally getting back on her feet. Some bureaucratic red tape (is that from the department of redundancy department) is interfering with her SS benefits arriving in a timely fashion. She really needs our help. No donation is too small. And I encourage you to encourage her by leaving a little note in the comments. I'd love it if we could get to $2,500 by the end of the weekend. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Well I'm sorry to say Kim has had some more setbacks. She really could use some help literally getting back on her feet. If you are able to throw something into the pot, that would rock. No donation too small. Really grateful for your help.
Thanks SO MUCH to all of you who have contributed so far. Kim is slowly healing and grateful for all your help and good vibes. She's still working to get her Medicare paperwork sorted. And she could still use some help. If you are able to contribute, please do. Every little bit helps. Thanks so much!
