My name is Kim. After being diagnosed with vasculitis, I was strongly discouraged from trying to start a family but in April 2009 I became pregnant. I couldn’t have asked for a better pregnancy or delivery. My daughter’s birth has given a whole new meaning to everything, including my reason for fighting this disease! My father was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma four weeks before Reagan’s birth and passed away when she was only two weeks old. I love Reagan to the moon and back. I thank God for her and for the joy she has brought to our world! She IS my everything!
