I have not tried this, but perhaps there's an alternative solution:
Save/convert the Word doc to PDF, and then convert the PDF to Kindle. A
quick google search turned up:

http://publishingcentral.com/blog/ebook-publishing/how-to-convert-pdf-files-into-kindle-ebooks

(same site Chris referred to).

Good luck and let us know how it goes :)
