Help Kim Come to Michigan

Hi everyone! I'm Molly and my friend's aunt Kim is currently in a nursing/rehabilitation home in Florida. The two family members she has there are unable to visit her. The doctors recommend she sees as much family as possible, as they believe it'll hugely benefit her. In Michigan, she has two sisters and a brother, and a ton of nieces and nephews who would love (with Covid-19 precautions) to see her. The place Kim will be moving to is half an hour from most of her family, and many of them have been enthusiastic about going to see her a couple times a week.

The main reason we want Kim to move is because of the way she's treated at her current place of living. Kim has told us many times that they treat her "ugly" and "poor" and that she'd rather commit suicide than be there. Her health is deteriorating. Her sister is ready to take responsibility for her and proceed with getting her the best care possible.

This is a photo of Kim in July, 2019.

And this is Kim in January, 2021.
In moving her to Michigan, we'd have to pay for medical transportation. It's 19 hours in the car. The estimate we received is $5'500. I set the goal a thousand higher in case it ends up being more.

If Kim's story moved you at all, please consider donating. Your donation will go towards her transportation. Anything helps. If you can't donate, please share her story. Thank you SO much!!
