Kim is a 44-year-old mother of two grown children and grandmother to two grandsons. She loves her family dearly and wants more than anything to see her grandsons grow up. Kim would also love to return to her career in accounts receivable, but she has needed to put work on hold while she undergoes treatment for lymphoma. She was diagnosed with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in February of 2012. Kim endured six chemotherapy treatments and a stem cell transplant, but at her six month check-up they discovered that her lymphoma had returned. She is now facing more chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant as soon as they find a donor match, and minimum of 100 days of housing expenses in order to stay near the hospital during treatment.
