Kimberly Neff has Toxic Neuropathy that was caused by a work “accident”. Her story goes as this ““ Two years ago she was working as a security guard in a gate house for a residential community. When a worker from their monthly pest control company came out to spray for ants, she showed him some video footage where ants were coming from the air ducts. So, he decided to push the attic door open and just fill the attic with pesticide fog. He told her to leave both doors open, and that she should be fine: Now Kim is in a wheelchair, she can’t walk on her own, she’s lost most feeling in her legs, she sometimes loses control of her bladder and bowel functions, she has neurological problems and people treat her differently. Kim is currently on 18 different prescription medications/lotions/patches and she is still waiting on Disability for assistance.
The above has been altered from Kimberly’s own words.

Kim is 25 and her story touched me.
