While she was fighting her own cancer, she raised her kids as a single mom, helped countless people gain sobriety, worked as a woman's advocate, worked in the substance abuse field, and helped others through their own battles with cancer. Kimberly was a symbol of hope for anyone that was struggling, always ready to lend help, compassion, and strength to anyone that needed it.
Kimberly was in remission for three years up until this past winter. This past reoccourance spread fast and with already compromised lungs, it was nearly impossible for her to recover. She passed on July 19, 2017 at 2:50 pm. Kimberly will be remembered as a bright shining beacon of love and warmth to anyone that had the pleasure of knowing her.
￼￼￼￼￼￼Kimberly leaves behind her two beautiful kids, Trevor and Carly, who she loved with all her heart. She also leaves behind two rescue dogs - Lily and Morrison - and two cats - Marmalade and Gracie - who she adored.
Being that Trevor and Carly do not have much blood family left, receving any support from their "chosen" family and friends would be extremely helpful. All donations will go towards cremation costs, Kimberly's final wish for a "big fucking party with drag queens and mariachi," and any expenses to help Trevor and Carly to get back on their feet.
Any remaining donations will go towards research on lung cancer and the genetic therapy drugs Kimberly relied on to help her raise her beautiful children. Trevor and Carly want to emphasise their mother's passion for helping others and supporting organizations such as https://www.lungevity.org who have the best interest at heart.
