Kate's Medical Fund

Earlier in 2017, Kate, aka Wonder Woman, was diagnosied with thyroid cancer.  With two surgeries behind her and more to follow, the bills are adding up.  Extensive and expensive treatments are unavoidable and in the near future.  Although Kate's insurance only covers a small portion of her mounting expenses.

Kate is an active AEMT and FF call member for Wakefield Fire Deptartment in NH. Well, that is, when's she not out in the Wild West; scaling mountians, plumbing canyons, riding horseback through the flowered fields while leading a group of peers, teens and young adults as a NOLS field instructor.  Wilderness medicine and her old farm house are two passions that she holds dear. 

Kate is one of the most genuine souls you'll ever meet.  If you have met her, you know how true these words are. An alchemist, adventure-seeker, caring and thoughtful friend, a magician in the kitchen, artist, hobby farmer, truly a one-of-a kind.

When asked if we could set up a fundraiser on behalf of Kate, she was clearly hesitant. But she was reminded that this really is for her friends to show how much she's loved, appreciated.  There is no question that this endeavor for her life is the greatest adventure Kate will ever have to endure. As she has lead so many others into  their empowerment in the wilderness, please consider letting her know she's not fighting alone.

If you're unable to monetarily support Kate, please consider sharing this post.  Be on the lookout for a funraising event that will happen in the near future!
