Kathy has battled breast cancer before, she was 56 years old when she was first diagnosed. Kathy was in remission for 2 ½ years when it came back. She is now currently battling stage 4 breast cancer. This time around it has metastasized into lymph nodes, her blood stream, and has appeared in her brain as lesions. Kathy has a paralyzed vocal chord and left diaphragm which prevents her from speaking clearly and walking for any length of time. Please take a day to help support this courageous woman.
