Lady Kimberly I. King
“ Message From Lady Kimberly King: Since I am a Breast Cancer Survivor, I just wanted to send a word of encouragement to those who are currently in the fight, and those who continue to have Victorious days in the face of this disease. It is breast cancer awareness month, #LetUs spread awareness and motivate our beloved sisters in and after their journey. The news of me having breast cancer was heart breaking but after a while my tears dried up. I then begin to understand that I was not alone and that we ( You and I) are not alone. Thus, I think this is excellent time to spread awareness and motivate others to do self-examination and get mammograms preformed. It important to stress that Early detection is the key. This is our Journey, Fight and Bond. #LetUs”

Lady King’s favorite scripture is 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 & 13 (NLT)
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!… Three things will last forever- faith, hope and love – and the greatest of these is LOVE.
