In Loving Memory: Kym Grupido

Thank you to Boise Glow for Cushing's Awareness for sharing Kym's story as part of their continued efforts to draw attention to this terrible disease.

My heart breaks for Kym, her family, and all those who knew and loved her.

Editor's Note:  While the Cushing's Support & Research Foundation ( would like to print only positive stories, many Cushing's stories are very sad.  Kym's story illustrates that even with all our current technology and diagnostics, more awareness is desperately needed.  We hope Kym's story tugs at your heartstrings and will perhaps motivate you to share your own story in a local paper, if you have not done so already.   If Kym's family and doctors had been aware of Cushing's, there is a good chance Kym would not have died.  It is for this reason the CSRF feels strongly that her story needed to be shared.
