About Jennifer Yim


Jennifer Yim

March 16, 1983 – November 22, 2009

Jennifer is the 2nd child of Han Ki Yim & Chan Hui Yim. She has an older sister Jane, a younger brother Kenneth, and a daughter named Summer. Jennifer is the type of person that will do anything for her daugter, family and friends. She cries when she see’s people in pain and wants to help everyone in need. This is the type of person she is however she is battling gastro intestinal & ovarian cancer w/Krukenberg tumors. It is a very aggressive cancer but we have a lot of people praying for her recovery. We are hoping to get this blog out and find a doctor that is willing to operate on her and remove the tumors that she has now. Please send forward our blog to everyone in your contact list.  Help us save Jenn. Thank you and God bless.

  1. I love you jenn…. dont worry everything is gonna be okiee.
    always be happy and dont ever give up on anything, you have so
    many ppl around you that love you so much. Dont ever forget that
    i am always here for you for anything ~~~~ anytime ~~~ I LOVE YOU!!!! thank you for everything you have done for me and thank
    you for loving skylar like your own.

  2. Jennifer can always put a smile on my face no matter how bad or lousy I feel. She has a big heart and cares so much for those around her. I am truly blessed and lucky to have her in my life. A REAL friend that I can always count on and turn to. She’s perfect. Jennifer is truly one of a kind.

  3. I love you Jennifer Noona! Words can not come close to summing up the feelings i have when i hear of you battling cancer. It hurts. Feelings of anger, sadness, futility… if only i could have been there for you more. Im sorry noona, forgive me. I wish i can take away your pain but for what its worth, you know you have my love and support. Even as i write this note i tear up knowing that such a kindhearted, selfless loving person like my dear cousin Jennifer Noona has to go through this sort of ordeal. Its just unfair, truly it happens to the best of us. I remember the times when you would take care of me when i would come over your house. How you would make me lunches and take me to parks while teaching me amusing songs that always brought a smile to my face. Whenever i was around you radiated a feeling of warmth, protection, and comfort. Noona, i will always be there for you through thick and thin, and know that your family and friends will always be there for you to support you in your fight against cancer. You, summer, and our family will forever been in my prayers. You can do it! I love you noona… I love you Jennifer noona! We can fight it together, I love you.

  4. Best wishes, please contact SLOAN Kettering Hospital!

  5. Everyone who have had the privilege to have Jennifer in their lives all know how beautiful she is inside and out. She has been one person who have left their mark in my life. Even through the times we’ve lost contact, she has been in my mind the whole 3-4 years that I have not spoken/heard from her.

    Growing up, my sister was overly protective of me all while she had trouble growing up herself. So her ‘best intentions’ of keeping me sheltered only turned into us growing apart. During those years, Jenn was always there to take me out, listen to me, and just watch over me in the times that my sister could not.

    She was my older Sister’s best friend, so she was over my house literally EVERY DAY! And that lead to US becoming close (I don’t recall exactly how) and eventually we hung out JUST as much or even more than she did with my Sister.

    Jenn taught me how to keep my head on straight, but still let me have fun with her. She used to pick me up, throw in $5 for gas and just stroll all over town. I loved going to her parents’ restaurant (Wikiwiki) after Church on sundays and make chili cheese fries and talk about how cute the little grandpa who’d often visit the restaurant was.

    There was never EVER a dull moment with Jenn and even through her funny jokes that she will put on you, she’s a BIG SOFTY! Crying watching korean dramas – when I thought she was kidding, she wasn’t! Growing up in our little town in Cerritos, people who didn’t know her saw her as this intimidating person, but once they got to know her; they all got to see how loving she can be – including myself! I was so scared of her that I’d watch what I would say when she’d come over to our house, but once we got to know each other it was undeniable how loving, protective, giving, and awesome she truly was. It was to the point where I was actually getting JEALOUS of all the love she was giving to other people and always secretly hoped I was her “ultimate fave”. Haha. I bet I’m not the only one who’s felt that way. You just can never get enough of her once you get a good full dosage of Jennifer. (my buttcheeek!)

    I just hope & pray that she will continue this journey called life and have the chance to bless more individuals out there as she WILL leave her mark in your heart. For good.

    BECAUSE, EVERYONE DESERVES A LIFETIME. we all really do. there should not be any exceptions for simply Living.

  9. Hi jennifer
    I pray that you are feeling better, as I can only imagine what you are going through. My thoghts and prayers are with you and yours, My mom and other family members have had different types of cancer and the one thing they all had was Faith in God and the doctors that treated them. God Blesss you and may he be your guide through this. My sistern-law was traeted by a Dr. @ UCLA Med. Ctr. in Westwood, CA and another at Long Beach memorial, if I find their names, I’ll give you the info. Best of Luck!

  10. Hi Jenn….I am an old school friend of Jane. I am truly sorry that you have to go through this but it looks like you have a great support group by side. I have personally battled a fatal disease and finally had my prayers answered.

    I know it’s not easy battling disease but you need to stay strong and remember who you are fighting for…in your case, Summer.

    I will keep you and your family in my prayers…God Bless!

  11. Hi you are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that things will only get easier and better. I saw this on perezhilton.com and I could not just sit there and ignore this.

    • Thank you for your comment. Our family and friends are actively searching for a doctor to help my sister. Please keep her in your prayers and forward the blog to everyone you know. God bless.

  12. Hello, I also saw this on perezhilton.com and could not imagine not saying anything. I am so sorry for what your family is going through. I hope you get the help you need and your sister and your family are in my prayers.

  13. *Also saw this on perez* I am extremely sorry for what your family is going through. My best wishes and kindest regards, may she get that doctor and make a full recovery very soon. I couldn’t just sit and not say anything, because this is awful. I hope that she gets better.

  14. Jenn i will pray for you , i hope you get well very soon , you are a warrior of the light , I dont know you but im with you and your family in this dificult moments

  15. I’m sure you’ll be okay!
    Many people will pray for you. (:

    Lots of love. x

  16. Dear Jennifer,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I too am a 27 year old woman. I lost my mother to breast cancer last year and had a scare with myself recently as well, and have this fear on my mind. Cancer is terrible and I will pray for you and all those that are suffering.

    You have my best wishes.

  17. God, I hope you pull through. You seem so sweet

  18. I dont know you but i wish you a lifetime of health and smiles may god bless you and your beautiful daughter (:

  19. My sister is also battling this cancer, she is only 39. I prey and hope for the best for you beautiful women. Sending positive vibes your way.

  20. I saw your post on Perez and had to respond. You should definitely check out MD Anderson in Houston. I have friends who have relatives who literally TRAVEL to Houston to receive care there. For four of the past six years, MD Anderson has ranked No. 1 in cancer care in the “America’s Best Hospitals” survey published in U.S. News & World Report. My dad is a doctor, (not the kind you are looking for though) and he recommends MD Anderson! We personally know people in Houston who have gotten through cancer thanks to the doctors there. I just know you could find some help!
    I’ll keep you in my prayers! God Bless!
    PS – Here is the website for MD Anderson: http://www.mdanderson.org/

  21. I saw your post on perez and hope things get better. I know they will. Love, Koral.

  22. I had no idea Jenn was going through this. Will pray for you.

  23. What terrible news. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.

  24. Hi Jenn! I’m one of Jane’s childhood school friends. I just wanted to show my respect and support for women who have the courage and will power to fight this evil disease. One of my nursing instructors has just been diagnosed with cancer as well. I will pray for you and your family. As for recommendations on physciians and care. I am only familiar with facilities that specialize in womens health and cancer such as Cedar Sinai’s Womens Research and Cancer Center and UCLA’s Jonsson’s Comprehensive Cancer Center. From what I noticed from survivors, those who survived and maintained were those with awesome emtional support and who empowered themselves with education and awareness. It seems like you have such a supportive network of loved ones, especially your sister, Jane. I’ll pray for your recovery and health. You take care. God bless to you and your family.

  25. It’s really hard to imagine all the pain you must be going through and I pray that there is a doctor out there. I’ve been around too many family members that had to battle with cancer, but to see someone so young… it breaks my heart. I couldn’t believe the news, but I know you’re a strong and optimistic spirit. God will surely answer all the prayers and reveal his plan… you’ve always had an impact on me… and helped me grow up. I’ve just found out that you have a daughter too… that’s wonderful! I do hope that we can see progression… if there is anything you need… i want to help!

  26. (((((((Jennifer)))))))

  27. I pray for you.

  28. I came across this blog through perezhilton.com and I decided to check it out. I am so glad that I did. Jennifer, I do not know you personally but I am someone that believes that we on earth are all related. With that being said I will treat you like a sister and pray for your well being. Remember that God never gives you more than you can handle. Never lose hope, keep God first, and live your life to the fullest!
