Kim is fighting Breast Cancer for the second time. She is BRCA 2 gene positive. Lynparza was just FDA approved in January 2018. It is different than a chemotherapy as it is an immuno-modulator. It works by destroying the cells and changing the chemical makeup so the cells cannot replicate. Kim has had success with the 1st round, unfortunately due to the medication just being released by the FDA; the insurance refused to cover the medication which Kim paid out of pocket for by selling personal property, and draining the bank account. Because of the success of the first round of medication the insurance was agreeable to cover 75% of the cost of the medication after she pays an additional $15,000 by December.
Kim and her family have been trying every avenue to raise the money without asking others for help. But due to the immediate need and great amount needed. I as a friend am asking others to help.
Kim's Dr's are hopeful that with a year of this medication it could save her from having to have a bilateral mastectomy.
If you ever thought about giving or making a difference in someones life. There will never be a more deserving person. Kim has been paying it forward to countless people throughout her life and has made a difference to others. Can you help make a difference to her and her family's life. Every donation no matter what amount will be greatly appreciated and would help ease the stressful burden that has been added to her fight by the cost.
