Kimberly will turn 8 later this month. The second grader from Wausau was diagnosed 3 years ago with Dyskeratosis Congenita, a rare bone marrow disorder.
She had a bone marrow transplant in July of this year and is doing well under the care of a Medical College of Wisconsin physician whom she thinks is “awesome” and who treats her in the MACC Fund Center at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. She likes everything about school, especially reading and math. She loves to be outdoors playing and going for walks and swimming. She likes the Packers the best. Her mom sincerely thanks all of Kimberly’s caregivers and gratefully states that she is “not sick at all and they have no worries.”
