Our buddy, Scott James Howarth—devoted husband and father, beloved son, protective brother and unwaveringly loyal friend—tragically passed away on January 10th at the young age of 41 after a fearless battle with cancer that never, even for a moment, managed to break his shining spirit.
As gutwrenching as this chain of events has proved to be, and realizing just how much life can drastically change in a matter of months, Scott's wife Kara, along with her two adorable children, Kaitlyn (5) and Christopher (3) have courageously stayed the course.
Nonetheless, facing Stage IV colon cancer was not Scotty’s first daunting battle. His daughter, Katilyn, was born premature, weighing 1 pound and 2 ounces at birth, yet throughout it all Scott showed his signature resiliency and astounding positivity in the face of such uncertain, dire circumstances, all while still managing to somehow make time for friends and loved ones to see how they were doing.
And young Kaitlyn sure seemed to follow suit, as she valiantly stared right through such glaring adversity, much in the way her father faced cancer head-on. After a long, emotional fight, Kaitlyn is now running around with the rest of the kids and sporting an unmistakable smile, just as every kid should.
So with the strength of Kara, Kaitlyn and Christopher close to mind and heart, we would love nothing more than to support that powerful zest for life as much as we can.
Any kind of donation—big or small—would go a long way in helping Kara and the kids through this incredibly tough, unfair time, and serve as a great gesture to all of those who loved, and still love, Scott and his family.
All proceeds raised will go to Kara Howarth, her children's education, and in any way Scott would have wished for.
