“Kim is progressing well and is resting and rehabilitating from a health issue,” the Pegula family said in a statement through the Bills.

“We are grateful for the medical professionals providing her care and to everyone for their prayers and well wishes. We ask that you please continue to respect our need for privacy during this time.”

The Pegula family released their initial statement through the Bills earlier this month. The team didn’t say what she was battling but thanked the medical team that was working around her.
