Kat: Random Acts of Kindness Make It a Good Day

The words of Kat Schilling of Eau Claire, WI, pierce the heart: “As much as I don’t like the fact that I lost a child, it is exactly that … a fact. I cannot change it, no matter how hard I wish I could.”

Eight years since the death of her son, Zach Hartsell, at age 16, to ewing sarcoma, a rare cancer, Kat said every day is a struggle. “I cry at the drop of a hat sometimes, and over the silliest things.”
