Kim Gilliam Steele is 54 year old woman who has survived many tragedies. She was born in Conway, Arkansas but lived most of her life in McDonough, Georgia. She now lives in Monticello, Georgia. She was diagnosed with Crohn's disease August, 1992.

She worked for several small companies and then began her career in the corporate world. She worked for the Coca-Cola Company for 15 years as an accountant and with the Department of Health and Human Services in Human Resources for over 8 years. Her career ended suddenly when her Crohn’s disease took over her life and became unable to work. 

She has a love for animals and thinks they are the best therapy. She has raised Pygmy goats, miniature donkeys, a llama, a baby jersey cow, a pot bellied pig, rabbits, several cats and dogs. 

May 14, 2016 she became ill suddenly and had to be rushed to the emergency room. She had a less than 9 percent chance of surviving. With God’s grace she survived! She is now a quadruple amputee and her life has changed forever.  She hasn’t let this stop her.
