On Black Thursday, March 19, 2015, Kathy was hit with the unimaginable, that she had inoperable pancreatic cancer. She asked how much time she had left, and was told 4 months, maybe 6. She cried, she cursed, and she cried some more. After a few days, she pulled herself together, and decided to fight, and fight hard, if that's what it would take to beat the horrible invader that was threatening her life. This is Kathy's story, a story of what it takes to try and beat the unbeatable. And what does it take? Caring, skilled doctors; great medical institutions; the willingness to try new paths; family support that pulled itself around her and gave crutches to lean on and shoulders to cry on; friends, close and distant, who pulled together, prayed and established prayer groups and said masses and novenas, who sent care packages and cards and flowers and gifts and a healing blanket ... but it took more, it took a strong, stubborn, determined woman who would not go down without a fight. And it took five miracles.
