SHREWSBURY Massachusetts – I know that this is a time of year when people are feeling the most gracious, and hopefully you can help these guys out at a time when they really need you. The following, is from a page set up by friends and family to raise the funds which are so desperately needed to help them with both short term and long term expenses.
Shrewsbury resident Kim Hally suffered a devastating brain stem stroke on April 22, 2013 while attending her son Tim’s lacrosse game. Life for the Hally family has been forever changed since that horrible day. We all know Kim as a wonderful wife to Jack, loving mother to John, Bridget and Tim, as well as a sister, aunt and friend. She has always given of herself to others and was the first to jump in and help someone in need. Kim’s feisty, no-nonsense yet positive attitude has helped many of us through the challenges of life. Now is the time for us to join together to show support for Kim as she faces this ultimate challenge.
Since her brain trauma in April, Kim has faced a long, uphill battle. She has almost no movement from her neck down, a tracheostomy which prevents her from speaking and is taking nourishment through a feeding tube. As you can imagine, her condition requires constant, specialized care. Jack, John, Bridget and Tim have been by Kim’s side constantly since that fateful day, showing tremendous love and abiding commitment to her recovery. As a family, they have made a promise to Kim to one day bring her home. There is much to be done before this dream can be realized and tragically Kim’s insurance provider has recently dropped her from coverage.
To assist with the immense challenge of financing uninsured expenses such as specialized care, home modifications and other injury-related expenses, a fundraising campaign in Kim’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for 30 years. In 2000, they expanded their mission to include those who have sustained a catastrophic injury. All contributions are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the Northeast Traumatic Brain Injury Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for injury-related expenses only.

Your donation today will enable the Hally’s to keep their promise to bring Kim home one day – together we can make a difference! Thank you in advance for all your support!
