Welcome to My Personal Page
You never think cancer will happen to you or to someone you love, but three years ago I lost my dad to cancer and, over the past decade, more friends than I care to count. Good people, caring people who made a difference in the lives of many. While survival rates from many cancers have steadily improved, pancreatic cancer remains a particularly stubborn enemy with a depressingly low survival rate and now it has a long-time friend, Dave 'Gus' Gustafson, in its grasp.
Those who know me know I've never asked for money for a cause like this, but I'm hoping you'll help me do something to change the statistics for this disease by making a donation to our 'PurpleStride' team - Team Gusto - in honor of Dave.
Every dollar you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients, including Dave, pictured above with his wife, Alice.
Please join me in this fight by clicking on the 'Donate to Katherine' button below. Whatever you can give is very much appreciated. Kathy
