Help Kimberly Beat Breast Cancer

Raised by 87 people in 14 months
I have found that I often have a hard time asking for help when I need it, but we are definitely in a time when we could really use all of the help we can get.

On April 6, 2017, I learned the terrible news that I had Stage 2B breast cancer.  The news completely floored me.  When I first felt the lump in my breast, I was extremely worried, but I was told it was probably nothing.  Fast forward two months and here we are.

Today I started 20 weeks of chemotherapy.  This will be followed up with several weeks of radiation, estrogen therapy and finally surgery removing my uterus and ovaries.  It will be a hard and long process, and I am so stressed.  I will not be able to work, and we learned that insurance will not cover everything we thought it would, like a wig and some anti-nausea medicine.  At the end of the day it's not only about money, it's about being able to heal and take care of my family as best I can.  

We really appreciate any and all help you are able to provide. Any leftover money will be donated to the Susan G. Komen charity helping others with breast cancer.  I will continue updating this page as often as I can as time and news progresses.

I wanted to post some positive. My hair is growing back! I look like a boy but it's the best thing ever, my eyebrows are in and my eyelashes are small but there☺ We are about to begin a new journey in North Carolina, one that I am so grateful for. It's extremely bittersweet because we have been so blessed here but starting new feels right. I can't thank each one of you enough for all of your support, I am truly blessed! Although my fight to beat this continues I know I can beat it because of souls like you ❤❤

Forever in my heart,

Kimberly

Thankfully chemo is over!! Unfortunately we have no insurance until December so fingers crossed that we don't get sick! I still have radiation to do..5 days a week for 6 weeks, I wish I could start it now but unless we pay $1,300 for one month I will have to put it off. I love all of you, your thoughts, prayers, and donations, they keep me fighting!

Hi there, I haven't updated this in awhile so here I go! This second round of chemo is not as horrible thank God, it's still no fun but I can get through anything after that 1st round! 1 have 7 more weeks before radiation and then surgery, this is such a long process but hopefully by years end we can celebrate. So many of you have gone out of your way for us- we are truly blessed, words alone cannot express our gratitude! Please know that we are so grateful and as soon as we can we will be paying it forward!❤❤

I would like to start this post off by thanking each one of you.. for your donations, kind words, and prayers. Yesterday I began my second round of chemo, what I am calling the beginning of the end. (Fingers crossed) This round is not supposed to be as hard on the body so I'm hoping I can get back to a new normal. My bones ache and I'm exhausted but I will take these side effects over what my body has had to endure over the last few months. Again thank you, I am truly blessed!❤❤

Best of luck, Kimberly! I too am battling BC this summer, after my primary doctor thought I had "a swollen lymph node."
