Kim has many medical problems, but has severe abdominal pain caused by separated abdominal muscles and a very large hernia. She has also had a bowel rupture and weight loss surgery as well as a complete hysterectomy. Kim needs to have surgery to fix her abdominal wall. She has medical insurance that will cover most of the cost of the surgery, but will need to be off of work for 2-3 months without pay and will not be able to pay her bills. She has no family or close friends to support her and is essentially alone in the world.
