First off, let's just say that you could never meet a more quality, down to earth, honest, happy go lucky guy than Kim. This is a guy who would give you the shirt off his back, even if that shirt is one of his favorites from the second hand store, if you needed it.
This is a guy who, even on your worst day, can make you laugh. He just walks into a room and it lights up with that smile and the twinkle in his eye. And, if you're looking for a good joke, well then, Kim's your man.
This is a guy that you can call in the middle of the night, although you may have to do it ten times in a row to get him to answer his phone, & he'll be there for you! He might be an hour and a half late and a dollar short, but dammit, he'll be there come hell or high water!
Kim is the kinda guy that relishes every moment he spends with every person in his life. Whether that person is there for 5 minutes or five decades. And if you are lucky enough to have spent any time with him, then you already know that.
Now that we've said some positive things here, and believe me, there are plenty more, we need to get down to the get down of the hogwash that Kim has been dealing with....so, here goes.
Shortly after marrying the girl of his dreams, Beth, in August of this year, Kim was diagnosed with Stage 4 Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Since that time, he has undergone chemo and radiation & is now having to use a feeding tube in order to eat as the tumor is located in his throat. He is now finished with those treatments for the time being and will undergo another scan at the end of February to see what effect the treatments have had on the tumor.
While Kim and Beth do have medical insurance, as we all know, it doesn't cover all of the meds and treatments necessary and they are facing mounting medical bills. Hence the reason why we're asking you for money here today.
Kim is a proud guy and he's a giver, not a taker, so this is not something that is easy for him, nor does he take it lightly....but, this guy has been doing for others for as long as, well forever, and it's high time we pay it forward, dontcha' think?
So, if you know Kim and Beth and you want to give a large amount, or you don't know Kim and Beth and you just want to help, well, as they say, every dollar counts! Just think, if 1,000 people gave only $1.00 - well, we'll let you do the math.
Our goal is $5,000 but we think we can blow that out of the water! So, what say you? Let's start paying it forward today!
Please forward this on if you feel comfortable doing so. We appreciate it and we appreciate each and every one of you.
If you can't afford to donate, that's ok - just keep sending those positive thinks Kim and Beth's way because they need all of those that they can get!
Thanks for your time and we will keep you updated on Kim's progress.
