Kimberly Tortorella   KINGS PARK, NY
Kimberly Tortorella (a long time resident of Kings Park, NY) was diagnosed with Leukemia on 9/4/2013. After having only 2 weeks to prepare for this extended hospital stay, Kim began her 6 weeks of intensive chemo therapy in an inpatient cancer facility at Stony Brook Hospital on 9/16/2013. Her biggest concern was her family (her Husband Jimmy, Son Robert 20, and her daughter Brianna 15). The doctor's advised her that her treatment is going to take 6 months at a minimum which will include several weeks of inpatient hospital stays.
To make matters more difficult she will only be receiving partial disability for income during her treatment period. Her Family and friends have offered her an enormous amount of love and moral support. She has high spirits and is concentrating on her goal, becoming cancer free. During this time period we are asking our friends, family and community to come together to help Kim get through this trying time so that her only concern is to beat cancer.
