Kittima has survived oral cancer. She still suffers muscular weakness in her left arm from the effects of chemotherapy and radiation. In spite of this she continues to create her jewelry. "I live my life with consciousness. I do everything for the present and future, leaving the past behind. I am very happy with the things I've done. I like crafting jewelry and I am so happy with it."
