Folk Figure. Her battle with leukemia led to the establishment of the Ronald McDonald House charities for children with serious illnesses. The daughter of former Philadelphia Eagles' tight-end Fred Hill, she was diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukemia at the age of three. During the next several years, a massive fund-raising movement was led by the Philadelphia Eagles' management (notably Eagles' general manager Jim Murray) and the creation of the Eagles Fly for Leukemia charitable organization came to fruition. In 1974, the first Ronald McDonald House opened in Philadelphia and by the mid-2000s there were locations throughout the country and world-wide benefiting thousands of children and their families. During the year, Kim would make numerous public appearances on behalf of the charity and was a participant in the 1984 Rose Parade which marked the 10th anniversary of the Ronald McDonald House's opening. Kim would go on to graduate high school and work as a manager of a McDonalds' franchise her father operated. However, she suffered from recurring brain tumors due to the heavy doses of radiation she received to treat the initial cancer. This would lead to her losing mobility, eyesight, the ability to speak and her eventual death. (bio by: C.S.)
