Family and Friends, we are working on a new fundraiser for Kimberly. There has been a turn of events in the family. Her husband's employer is closing their doors and their income will be drastically impacted.
Kimberly uses the funds raised through HelpHOPELive to go to doctor visits at Cedar-Sinai which is about 2 hours from her home. Sometimes her appointments are over a two day period and require an overnight stay nearby to avoid extra strain put on her body from traveling too close together.
Fundraising information will be available soon and cross-posted on Facebook. If you are interested in helping with promoting the fundraiser, please contact her mom, Brenda Van Meter at [email protected].

Kimberly has been under a doctor's care to help with migraines caused by some of the anti-rejection medication. Since moving to California, she and her family have been living with her parents to help ease the financial strain. Kimberly has to go to Cedar-Sinai for a number of appointments about every three months now. She's doing well and working with the doctors to ensure her health stays under control. Kimberly just celebrated her 30th birthday February 18th. Her family is very grateful for the donor family who made it possible for Kimberly to remain a part of their lives. Truly, they feel blessed.
