Recently, Kim found out she has a golf ball-sized, non-cancerous tumor in her brain called, Vestibular Schwannoma. It's also known as an Acoustic Neuroma. This tumor has caused major dysfunction with Kim's equilibrium/balance, hearing, sight, and smell, also causing numbness in her face. These extreme symptoms leave Kim unable to do anything but rest. She has had to take a leave of absence from work and, at times, is unable to drive and/or walk.
She's been a single mom for 14 years and is the hardest worker I'm sure many of us have known. She doesn't stop caring for others.
Luckily, she is still able to have clients come to/call her for Intuitive Healings to bring in some income, but any work that requires physical activity is out of the question.
Gamma Knife surgery is taking place on Thursday, July 18th. This will help the tumor to shrink. The normal estimated time for this is anywhere between two months to two years. Kim needs support and assistance in paying rent, buying food for her and her son (and cats!) during her recovery. It could take weeks or months for her to get back to feeling somewhat normal.
Any donation would help our lady tons!
Before the tumor symptoms escalated, Kim was able to create beautiful paintings that you can purchase from her.
She is still able to do healings/readings for people in-person or on the phone. Please contact Kim if you are interested or want to schedule a session.
