Kate’s Mother’s story

kate sitka mom story

On January 15th, 2014, my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme.  That’s a big, bad, nasty brain cancer.  In the past, people who have received this news have survived for a year or so.

In April 2014, and in September 2014 I was able to travel home to be with my mother thanks to you amazing folks, my readers.  You donated to my travel fund, you booked readings, you told your friends.  Please know how grateful I am, I could not have done it without you.  You guys aren’t just blog readers, you’re friends and angels.

Thank you so much for your help.  I will be forever, forever grateful for that extra time with my mother.

On Thursday April 23rd, 2015, just before 3 am, my mother passed away while in the company of loving family.

She received the best possible care, but it still breaks my heart.

Thank you everyone for your kind words of support, and a very special thank you to the folks who have written me about their own losses, and how this blog and my mother’s story has helped them through some of the most difficult times of mourning.

Grief touches all of us, and so none of us are alone.

For all of your love and support, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
