Journal entry by Dianna Wilke


Kate is doing really well, all things considered. She is a warrior! She recently finished her second round of chemo and the MRI showed that the tumor actually shrunk a bit. She is responding well to treatment and we are all so thankful that all is steady. She is being seen monthly by City of Hope and is having her day to day needs handled locally. She is still enjoying being closer to family and eating at all her favorite spots. She is feeling pretty good. Headaches and fatigue are her chief complaints. 

Her husband has thrown his back out and is back home after a brief visit to the hospital. When he is all better, they will celebrate her birthday in the manner in which they should... a BIG Way! 

Happy Birthday Kate, We Love You!!!
