Friends and family of Roseville resident Kimberly Hole are hosting two fundraisers to help cover medical costs for the 39-year-old who was diagnosed in April with necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh-eating disease.

Hole, who has three sons with her husband and is an Army reservist, first felt a pain in her leg in early April. She thought she had pulled a muscle, but when the pain didn’t go away, doctors at Sutter Roseville Medical Center diagnosed her with the disease. Hole underwent surgery to remove her gluteal muscle and left hamstring muscle. A week after this surgery, doctors had to amputate the remainder of Hole's left leg.

It remains unknown how Hole contracted the flesh-eating disease, according to her friend Rickell Romero, who is organizing the fundraisers.

Despite undergoing more than 20 surgeries, Hole isn’t out of the woods yet. Her friends are holding the fundraisers to assist with medical bills and pay for a prosthetic leg.
