Kathaleen's (Kathy) Memorial funds

Kathy is a wife, mother of 4 and Nana of 2. She is young, strong and brilliant. She has had a very tough year. In August she found out she had a broken back and was scheduled to have surgery in October. She was unable to get the surgery because of other health reasons. In the time after the original surgery was scheduled Kathy's health declined considerably. She started losing her balance, not being able to hold down food and getting disoriented. Even though she has no insurance (because of being off of work due to the back) her family pushed her to go to the hospital on January 6th...

In the weeks Kathy has been in the hospital they have done everything known to man to figure out what is wrong. She has kidney cancer for sure and a mass on the pancreas that may or may not be related. We found out that the cancer spread to the lower spine and in the inferior vena cova which is the vein that runs from the kidney to the heart and then to the lungs. On Sunday January 18, she went into ARDS, the begining of lung failure. She was then put on life support. With everything we tried, she did not have the fight in her that we so desperately wanted.

We lost our mom, wife, nana, sister, cousin, aunt, and friend on Monday January 26 2015 at 7:48pm. We surrounded her with family and played Danny Boy, her favorite song. She left this world peacefully full of love. 

During all of this, her husband did not work so that he could be with her and the bills are piling up. The medical expenses are going to be too great for the family to cover. There is no life insurance and very little in savings.

 Even $5 would help right now.

Anything anyone can provide for us would be so great, even if it is just thoughts and prayers.
