HOUSTON – If you or a loved one has ever faced a life-changing diagnosis, you know how crucial a good support system can be. When one local man’s wife was diagnosed with pre-diabetes, he took it one step further and started looking for a way to help heal her.
LJ Williams developed a health food called Jinka to help his wife, Kim Williams, battle the disease. In discussing how it all started, the couple began with the first day they met.
“It was love at first sight. She seen me and just couldn’t take her eyes off me," joked LJ.
The pair laughed at LJ’s apparently incorrect memory. Kim took no time to set the record straight.
“When we met each other our first time, I didn’t gaze too long because he had on a choker," said Kim. “He wouldn’t shake me that day, so we connected, and it really has been love ever since.”
The couple then welcomed a baby girl into their lives, after which Kim received the news about her diagnosis. According to Kim, diabetes was not an option for their family.
“We had a one-year-old, and I had never been diagnosed with anything in life," said Kim. “I was just thankful to have a husband that understood that this wasn’t an option and was able to do something to correct it.”
