On September 3, 2015, Kate was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer.  Her husband, Toban, and almost 2 year old son, Zach, will need all the support they can get as they embark on the difficult journey they have ahead of them.  Toban will be documenting Kate's progress here .

All of you who know Kate know what an amazing person she is - kind, caring, thoughtful, smart as a whip, hilarious, generous....the list goes on.   

Your prayers, kind words, and thoughts have been instrumental in helping them through this journey so far.  If you are able to make a monetary contribution to assist them with the additional medical and childcare costs they'll be facing, please consider donating here.  Any amount, no matter how small, helps!

Thank you!

Professor Bowler and family, your story has touched my heart. I'm a graduate student and briefly met you at the RAAC conference this past summer. You simply introduced yourself as "Kate" and were so kind and unassuming that at first, I thought you were a graduate student yourself! It was only when you went to the table to give your paper that I connected the dots and realized, "wait, that's Kate BOWLER!" My brief encounter with you stuck with me, and I was saddened to hear that you're going through such a tough ordeal. I wish I could give more, but please know that you have my continued support by way of prayers and well-wishes, always. Hang in there!

Kate, I am your sister Amy's friend and realtor. (I can sure see the family resemblance!) I am so sorry for the terribly difficult time you and your loved ones are going through. I send you prayers for a speedy and complete recovery. Warmest best wishes, Karen Trimble
