Kim Kuffner Obituary, Death Cause – I am sitting here today and writing this with a tremendous degree of melancholy because:
Kim Kuffner passed away suddenly on the evening of May 21st, taking her family and friends by complete surprise. On April 22, what had begun as what we anticipated would be a brief mental health respite in the Dube Centre at RUH changed into a stay in the medicine ward with an unknown illness that made it difficult for her to breathe. The illness caused her to have difficulty breathing.
She was transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU) on May 19 to be placed on a ventilator in the hopes that if she didn’t have to fight as hard to breathe, she might be able to battle whatever was causing her lungs, and later her heart, to have to work so hard. This was done in the hope that if she didn’t have to fight as hard to breathe, she might be able to fight whatever was causing her to have to work so hard. her was hoped that if she didn’t have to work as hard to breathe, she would have a better chance of beating whatever illness was causing her. Therefore, this was done.
Because we still do not know how or what caused her condition, we are unable to provide any answers to the question that you posed. It is common knowledge among us that she was not to blame for what took place. It wasn’t cancer, COPD, emphysema, COVID, or pneumonia, either. None of those things were to blame. It’s possible that our level of knowledge will increase in the days and weeks ahead.
You are welcome to post any pictures that you and Kim have taken together if you decide that you would like to share them on this page. I will keep you informed as soon as I have any new information on the memorial service. It would be irresponsible of you to withhold your affection from others while you still have the opportunity to do so; please make sure that you and the people who are important to you are healthy and happy.
