My name is Kim, I’m really nice and I’m asking for your help. It is not in my nature to ask, especially ask strangers for help. However, it is in my nature to put the needs and happiness of my family above everything else. Which brings me to my purpose here today. I would like to begin with a little of my background story so that you may know me better. My parents who were married over fifty years, blessed my life with nine siblings. Sandy, Candy, Randy, I guess my parents got tired of rhyming names after, because then came Nona, Deanna, Edd, Joe, Kirk and Kim ( my twin brother and myself), and the baby of the family, whom we affectionately call Bunny.
My troubles and worries began one sunny July morning in the year 2023.
I began to notice a soreness in my big toe. Of course, I sought medical attention when it started to become worse, as one does. I was diagnosed with cellulitis on that visit. A bacterial infection which they concluded was from an ingrown toenail. That day began a long process of seeing many different doctors, four emergency room visits and over half a dozen antibiotics and extreme pain for the next 8 months.
Finally, becoming desperate I traveled to another country and saw a physician there who informed me that I did have an infection in my foot but the reason that it was not healing was due to the fact that I had poor blood circulation.
That doctor saved my life because I followed up on his hunch with my own physicians and sure enough I had two arteries in my leg which were 100% closed, absolutely no blood circulation in them.
I had to have two stents placed in my leg and they were only able to save my leg from being amputated by the grace of God. I will be on medication for the rest of my life and I owe medical bills nearing
$10, 000. But I am alive and that’s what matters the most. That I get to spend the years that I have left on this earth with my children and grandchild. I unfortunately had to sell my only vehicle in order to pay for the surgery and I’m just looking for any sympathetic, caring people to help me with purchasing a used vehicle, approximately $4800. So that I may go back to work and some resemblance of a normal life.
God bless you,
