Today's Update

Yesterday Kim received news from the results of the biobsy of her breast.  The tests determined that Kim also has breast cancer.  The doctors are not sure at this point whether it is the ovarian cancer that has spread to the breast - or breast cancer that has spread to her ovaries - or two completely different cancers.  Her doctor, Dr. Webb is meeting with a team of specialists on Monday to discuss and chart a course to take for the surgery.  As for now the surgery is scheduled for Wednesday, September 29th at the Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City. Your prayers, love, and thoughts are what is keeping Kim strong, please keep them coming.

  2. Thinking of Kim always makes me laugh...because I remember Young Women Camps and all of us leaders rolling out of our sleeping bags those early mornings. Kim would always make a hilarious comment about her aching body and we would all be giggling!

    Keep rolling out of that sleeping bag...keep smiling.
    LOVE YOU!!
