In Honor of Kathleen Thorson and the Thorsons


Mother extraordinaire. 

Bringer of love, life, and magic. 

Giver of goodness and hope.

On Sunday, December 29th the Thorsons welcomed to the world their youngest son and brother Teddy. Five days later Kathleen was rushed to the emergency room due to severe bleeding in her brain, causes unknown. 

Kathleen's condition deteriorated to a point that she could no longer survive. As was her wish, we are doing everything we can for her to be the prayed-for miracle of life for certain others in need of organ donations.

There aren't many words to be said except that we love her, and we will miss her with every breath we take. Through all of this hardship, her love, life, and magic are still felt.

Estimated Costs:
Our target amount for funding has been set at $50,000 as the Thorsons are now facing medical costs for the birth of their youngest son,  for Kathleen's hospital bills, and for upcoming funeral expenses. 

In addition to these costs, Kathleen's husband Jesse is facing a significant loss of time at work. We all want him to be able to spend as much time as possible with his children.
We hope to defray as many of these unexpected and unwanted costs as possible but cannot put a direct price tag on what will be needed in the coming months. 

Other forms of help:
Be a little more like Kathleen.

Look for the hand of God in your life every day.
Love people. Cook them tasty food.
Enjoy the beauty of your ordinary life.
Go on adventures.
Read poetry.
Take calming baths.
Wear soft clothes.
Grow things.
Grow people.
Grow dreams. 
Find out who you are and be the best You that you can be.
