Katie Kits Delivered to Gilda’s Club

Our hearts are full.  Dropped off the maybe last batch of 16 Katie Kits to Gilda’s Club of Metro Detroit and the Breast Cancer Group will get them Wednesday.  With the balance going to some of their other groups.  Glad Katie’s love and desire to give directly to those going through treatment has worked out ...

Never an easy day, but a wild coincidence happened…

Yesterday still was a tough day for many, even after 5 years.  Missing Katie, missing Nate too and hoping he is thriving in Germany.  Things peak at expected and surprise times.

Remembrance approaching…

Bike Thank You for All… Some Music! AND Katie Kits to Gilda’s Club!

Breast Cancer Resources and MBC / Stage 4

For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, wanted to share some organizations doing important work in the areas of support and research, including Stage 4 / Metastatic Breast Cancer.  This is when Breast Cancer spreads to another parts of the body and is sadly why over 40,000 women pass away each year.  Katie had MBC and was ...
