Hi everyone, my name is Kristen and I am a very close friend of the Simko Family. As you may be aware, Bob was recently diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. This was very sudden and of course devastating to everyone. He has been in and out of the hospital receiving blood transfusions, platelet infusions, and they are working very hard to keep his platelets up so he can receive the chemo treatment. We are very hopeful, but there is a lot to manage and his care is very important especially in these upcoming months. Bob is unable to work, and may not return leaving the family with a huge financial burden to bare.
I wanted to put this campaign together as one way to help. I specifically chose this platform because as a Christian Crowdfunding site ALL the donations go directly to the family!!! As most of you know, Kim is a Senior Sales Director in Mary Kay Cosmetics. This is a tremendous blessing, as she will be free to make her own schedule and be with her husband as much as he needs during this time. In the same sense financially we want them to have peace in knowing we are coming together and have their backs, so she can work when she wants. If you've had any interactions with this family you KNOW they would bend over backwards for anyone!! I truly feel if we come together as a community surrounding this family we can move mountains. Bob, Kim, Zack & Lexi appreciate your support more than you could know. There is also a meal train for anyone local.
Please know we realize how difficult the timing with the holidays is! Any amount can make an impact, and please know prayers and positive energy are JUST as critical at this time. Thank you for reading and for your #SimkoStrong support!!!
