Update 2/28:

It is with a heavy heart that I post that Kat lost her battle with cancer today. She passed away in her sleep this morning after a long and grueling fight with cancer. She leaves behind her wonderful and supportive husband, Vince. Vince has been amazed and extremely appreciative of all those who have supported them on this page. It goes without saying that I hope all that read this, pass this site along to friends.

Additionally, her loving husband Vince, has not been able to work while caring for her - creating an incredibly difficult financial challenge. Please do what you can to support them in their fight!
