Personal donation page for Kit Likwid to help her pay for her heart surgery and educational costs!!! Funds will go directly to her acct, not Jennifer's (I just set up the funraiser. All $$ goes straight to her acct) Thank you all so much for all your support in helping our beloved friend recover from such a terrible hardship!!! As many of you may or may not know, Nancye a.k.a. Kit Likwid, has recently been battling some pretty serious medical issues; the most recent almost took her life. She suffered TWO strokes in one week which she discovered after waking up to half of her body completely paralyzed and half of her face drooping and drooling uncontrollably. Can you imagine being so young and to experience this not once, but twice... that she knew of???!!! After many doctor visits and consults w/ specialists, tests upon tests and scans after scans run on her, the doc's found out she had a hole in her heart. Unfortunately shes a smoker and been exposed to many hard years of various kinds of stress thats been put on her heart, and the hole needed to be patched immedietly or else the consequences were fatal with no definitive timeline as to when exactly, but the doctor's basicly said she was a ticking time bomb and playing Russian Roulette if she did not do the procedure right away. Well, that was all she needed to hear so she had to procedure done at the Debakey Heart center in Houston and has recovered very well. Still smoking unfortunatly, but really wants to quit and has cut back a lot since all of this went down.Another thing most of you also know about Nancye is that she is also a full time college student at SHSU in Huntsville and due to the urgency of her condition had to spend all the rest of her saved college money on her surgery and medications. Now she has NO MONEY left and maxed out on funds offered for student loans. No MONEY for continued medical care (dr visits and gas to and from dr's appts in Houston), medications she need to keep her alive, food, gas money to and from doc and school, rent (she lives with my husband and I and our 3 children and I am also a full time college student), and now her car has started to overheat last week!!!! She is battling some very serious, extremely painful female issues as well that warrant a hysterectomy ASAP!!!!I can't stress to you enough the urgency of her situation!Cancer in the uterus, tons of cysts on the ovaries and a handful of other issues to add to the list which = HELL for a woman!!!She is a strong leader and voice in our community, standing up for everyone and everything she believes in and fighting for what's right! She has been and continues to be so many things to so many different people....a friend, a daughter, a colleague, a mentor, a musician/DJ, promoter, a student, a dancer, a performer, a granddaughter who has been helping care for her invalid grandmother for quite some time, and also a mother to a wonderful young son!!!
