Round Three: on 9/22/17 I was rediagnosed with a 3rd occurence Ganglioglioma brain tumor w/ BRAF Gene Mutation.  I will be receiving out of state treatment at the Health Hippocrates Institute in West Palm Beach Florida from
10/22-17-11/11/17.

The goal is to detox and receive alternative treatments to reset my body and heal from within.

WHY:  A 3rd surgery will take my most of my vision.

Thank you #TEAMKAT

Team Kat -- Thanks for visiting. Steph here for Kat while she prepares for November 14th, round III brain surgery.

Kat "the brave" is doing her part, getting ready to face down a third brain surgery. It's inconceivable. But she is an inspiration with her faith and her fight. This woman wants to continue to inspire and invest in the people she loves and the people she's yet to meet by fighting this hard.

Would you please join me as we create a circle around her? It bugs me that I can't carry any of this weight for her, but I know there are ways I can help. I can support her in friendship, in faith by praying, and by helping with the financial burden.

I hope you will choose some or all of these ways to help Kat and her family as well. There's no donation that is too small to help; and each response reminds Kat that we are around her and she matters greatly. Send her a note, post on her wall, call her. Stand with her.

Ok... If you're still reading -- warning -- here comes a story. Before Kat's first brain surgery, she and I met for dinner. You name it, we talked about it. Then we did some important "retail preparation." We visited a wig shop and got Kat ready for what was to come. Ultimately, we decided on a Nike cap and some fun long hair. We also visited a toy shop. I 'bout lost ma-mind! But Kat (and Brian) had fun and kept their minds (ahem) busy the night before the surgery.

Round two: While Kat is anything but "traditional," when it came time for round two, she wanted to keep up our tradition. Kat brought me in from one big D (Dallas) to another (Detroit), and we again pursued some locks fitting to Kat's style. Now, this time, Kat found a new & improved way to make me blush. We headed out to the UofM pool for her exercise therapy. I'm a Spartan through and through, but have ANY of you ever tried to say no to Kat? (That's what I thought!) She wanted me in the pool with her. I reminded her that I didn't have a suit. Yeah, well, nice try. She pulls out this blue and gold piece of dental floss and tells me to put it on. I have no words for what happened next. Let's just say... we swam. (Probably best not to linger on a mental picture here.)

Kat takes us places and stretches us. She's allowed to, because she puts herself out there completely.

So... Will you jump in this pool with us? Wear whatever colors Kat is sporting to get her through this? Experience a little discomfort if it makes your friend stronger? I hope your answer is yes, friend.

God bless you -- and keep the prayers coming for Kat, her family, her surgeons... May her beautiful spirit always stay strong as she continues to inspire us all. And may all your bathing suits be stretchy.
