Fighting Cancer With Rich

We are so blessed
February 27, 2016
Hi, my name is Richelle Kime and I’m the oldest daughter of Shufei and Rich Kime. Rich was born and raised in Iowa. He met his wife Shufei while attending school at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. They got married on March 1990 and 26 years later, have 5 beautiful kids. On Februrary 21st, my dad was rushed to the emergency room with severe pain. After different tests and scans and hours in the ER, he left the hospital with a diagnosis that was not expected. He was diagnosed with cancer.
I’ve set up this online fundraiser to help raise money for my family. With this diagnosed, there are a lot of hard financial problems to come. Rich is getting treatment in Iowa City which means Shufei will be spending a lot of time in Iowa City with him which takes away from time that she can work at her clinic. It also means money they will have to spend on food, parking tickets, and gas. And since Shufei will not be working as much, it means that they won’t have a lot of money to help pay for all the bills, loans, and mortgage that they still have to pay. They still have three kids at home who are very active in school and sports, as well as a daughter going to school in Utah who asks for help every now and then as well.
After his treatments, he will also have medical bills they will have to pay as well. Any little bit will help my family out. We are praying that my dad gets well soon and throughout this whole thing, he has shed many tears when seeing how much people care about us and how much people have helped.
