On May 2, 2012, Kim's life changed forever. While sitting at her desk grading papers, her blood pressure spiked to 220/120. She was sent to the ER and was never able to step foot into a classroom again. After many tests, Kim was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome. Her kidneys are not filtering properly so she struggles with everyday routines such as playing with her son, giving him a bath, and even cooking dinner for her family. Kim still visits doctors, goes to dialysis, takes medications, and deals with serious health issues on a daily basis. She was forced to officially resign from her teaching profession and is currently waiting for a kidney transplant. This has put a major financial strain on her family, who cannot afford to live on one income. They currently reside in a one bedroom town house with their son. On top of normal expenses, she has additional medical bills, doctors' co-pays, prescriptions and an impending surgery to fund.
