Kim's journey

Kim was diagnosed last Thursday, September 16, 2010 with ovarian cancer. As Kim's Family, Friends, Neighbors and Fans - we have started this blog to help share information, updates, support, and love with each other during her next few months of surgery, treatment and healing. We will try to update it whenever we receive information. Please feel free to leave a comment expressing your support, love, and encouragement anytime - as that is how we will all grow and strengthen each other - especially Kim and her family. We love you Kim, and our faith, prayers, and total support and dedication are with you as you embark on this "Journey"!

Faith and Prayers

Thank you for your faith and prayers.  Surgery went better than expected. I am hoping to be released by the middle of this week.  It's been hard, but your prayers have definitely been felt.  I am touched by how many of you are serving me and my family with your acts and expressions of love and kindness.  My family has  been greatly blessed through you.  My thoughts turn to those who might not be as fortunate as I.  Those who may be fighting a battle, any battle, without the support that I continue to receive.  I ask you to please look and see if there's something you can do for someone who might feel alone, and help them as you've helped me.  Thank you, thank you, for your love, faith, and prayers.  What a mighty blessing they have been for me!   Love to you all!  


  1. Kim, you are frequently on our minds! I am thankful for your blog that keeps us informed. I missed going to the reunion and seeing the family. Our prayers are with you and it is nice to know that the Lord is taking care of you and the family. We are busy planning Moms 80th Surprise Open House, we took your idea of the 80 cards for her 80th birthday. I have gotten the word out to some of the extended family thru FB, but not all. So when you are feeling better and up to it, ( or tell Vern) if you choose you may send a card to myself at
    'Jewell Iverson'
    4175 Kimberly St.
    Richland, WA., 99352

    We will continue to pray and hope you know of our love for you!
    Take Care, Kim and contiue to fight.
    Love Lots, XOXOX

  2. Kim, been thinking and praying for you. Glad the surgery went well.

  3. Hi there! I was reading a few of your posts and just wanted to let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Even though medicine has progressed leaps and bounds, having a great support system is truly invaluable. I had a quick question about your blog and was hoping you could email me back when you get the chance, thanks : )


  4. Kim! I am so glad I stopped by last month to see you. You are such an inspiration of faith, love, patience, hope, understanding, gratitude-so many, if not all of the same characteristics our Savior and Heavenly Father have. We appreciate that our family, especially our children, have grown to love you, just by praying and fasting for you. It has been a blessing for us. Know that we will continue to pray for you and your sweet family through this roller coaster ride that you are on. Thank you for your example and kindness. You are an amazing woman. Love, Celeste and Wes McKinney and Family
    PS-I would still love to read your talk from Stake Conference if somebody can load it onto the blog for you. THanks!
