Kate's (Kato's) a single woman with her own business that she's built from the ground up...she's supporting herself, she volunteers in so many different areas and she just recently found out that she had a heart murmur which led to a cardiologist vist, stress test and finally the news that she has an aneurysm on her ascending aorta that needs to be operated on ASAP which will be Monday morning January 29th...this completely caught her off guard as you can imagine...she's looking at unexpected medical expenses along with missing work in her busy season...she won't be able to drive for weeks or lift for months...she's going to be limited on diet and I was thinking instead of casseroles and things that maybe we could help her out with the significant debt that will be coming in after this...she's not one to ask for help and she was also caught off guard with a surgery last year (hysterectomy) which stopped her from her normal work...I really don't know how much to request in funds because of so much missed work, deductibles and co-pays..not to mention prescriptions, rehab and who knows what else.....any love offering is appreciated along with holding her in a sacred spaace.
Here's Kate recenty giving a talk on laugh therapy....
She's always positive and helping others...she had so much fun doing this talk
She's a self described Tree huggin', Peace Lovin', Dirt Worshipper!
We've had a long running joke that her heart is probably 2 sizes to big (think The Grinch who's heart is 2 sizes to small) because of all the things she helps others with ...well it turns out it actually is to big because of the aneurysm and the faulty valve letting fluids go back into her heart...
