Another cancer patient needs our help

Up until 2005, Kim Mower was running her own business, Kim's Key Lime Pies and Coffee Shop, on Solomons Island in Maryland and raising her two children as a single mom. Her baking supplied the restaurants on the island with desserts. Then in that year tragedy struck when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. I can't even begin to imagine how devastating such a diagnosis would be. For 11 months, Kim was required to travel to Balimore, Maryland to receive treatment.

Kim was lucky that the restaurants she supplied with her desserts were willing to work with her and take whatever good she could produce and luckily the town helped cook meals for her and her children.

Unfortunately, Kim's cancer has relapsed and has now spread to her bones. Kim's treatment including chemotherapy is very costly.

On Sunday, August 2nd, beginning at 1 p.m. a benefit will be held for Kim at the Tiki Bar located at 81 Charles Street, Solomons, Maryland. There will be 2 stages of Live Entertainment, on site seated massages available, hot dogs, hamburgers and a pig roast. It will be a great day of fun and you will be helping Kim pay for her expensive treatments that she needs.

You can find all the information regarding the cancer benefit for Kim by joining the Facebook group or through the Tiki Bar's website. If you cannot attend the fundraiser you can also make donations for Kim by mailing a check to the address found here.

Kim and her children could use all of our prayers, thoughts, and monetary donations that we are able to give at this time. It is very important.
