After hours of research, Kim has found alternative treatments, but these have to take place in America as they are not available with the NHS.
To raise funds, her partner Darren Aldred is set to complete a skydive of 11,000ft with the aim of the family heading to America to get Kim the treatment she desperately needs.
They are hoping the skydive will take place in January 2021, dependent on the coronavirus measures at the time.

Kim said: “I just ask that someone out there puts faith it the fact that America could be my life line. There is nothing I want more in the world than to watch my baby girl grow.
“It means the world and more that Darren is doing a skydive to raise money. I know he’s felt useless throughout my cancer journey and he spends every minute of every day caring for me and our daughter – he’s the most amazing person I’ve ever met.”
