Kim and Jeff Miller

Kim and Jeff Miller were like many other 40-year old’s enjoying their lives together, their then 12 and 16 year old children, who are now 17 and 21 years old, step daughter and grandchildren. Suddenly, their world began to change!!!! In 2013 when Jeff had his first and, later that year, his second stroke. The family adjusted the best they could to both the loss of Jeff’s income and the additional care he required. Life went on, then in late 2017 Jeff had three more strokes. These stokes caused severe damage impacting his short-term memory and his ability to perform daily life skills. Once again, the family tried to adjust, now to the increased care required for Jeff!! At Christmas 2017, after Jeff’s most recent strokes, Kim became ill. After months of numerous tests and doctors’ visits, Kim was diagnosed with stage 4 adenocarcinoma (glandular cancer). Doctors have said this is an incurable but treatable cancer. Kim will be starting chemotherapy immediately while trying to provide the care necessary for Jeff and help the family adjust to yet another crisis. This is truly the worst “perfect storm” imaginable.
As parents and grandparents, we can not begin to appreciate the level of anxiety and, yes, fear that this is causing for the Miller family. Over the course of a few short years they have gone from a fun loving two income family to one with life altering and life threatening medical issues and medical expenses and with no income. As friends, we are asking everyone to contribute to this GoFundMe account to help ease some of the financial and emotional strain. For your information GoFundMe only charges a very minimal $0.30 (30 cents) per donation administrative fee, regardless of the amount, above the normal 2.9% credit card processing fee. Therefore you can count on your donation going to help Kim and Jeff!!! Any contribution is greatly appreciated and will go directly into an account established to help Kim, Jeff and family fight thru this difficult time. Our goal is based on giving Kim and Jeff peace of mind by providing enough money for their house payments and utilities for 24 months. Thank you for joining us in helping this wonderful family!!!!!!
