Hi everyone, my name is Peggy. I've been friends with Kate (or Kat as most of us know her) since the day she moved to Ohio in 2009. As I'm sure all of you know, she was recently diagnosed with Cancer, and it's taking a very hard toll on her energy, body, and especially her finances.

Since I've known Kat, she's struggled with so much, in relationships, in health, finances and trying to be a wonderful friend to those in need. Right now, she is struggling financially, hard. I had the chance to visit with her a few weeks ago, and I happened (Not being nosey I swear) and saw the pre-eviction notice on her apartment, the past due notices for her electric, phone and internet, and she just recently got her car back from reposession. The months are only going to get harder as her cancer treatments progress.

I miss the happy, bubbly, overly-talkative, easily excitable friend from 4 years ago... I hate seeing her jump every time the phone rings, or someone knocks on the door. She tries so hard to put on a face for those around her, but she really needs our help.

I don't want her to be aware of who is doing this for her, because I know she would feel indebted to everyone. In 2009, when Kat left her absusive husband, she came to live with me. It was a godsend. My 13 year old son Christian and I were fighting constantly, and my husband up and left us with nothing. Kat took a job working at the VA hospital that winter, and even worked as a CNRA at a few local hospitals to help us out.

If I could give her all of the money in the world, I would. She a very deserving, very loving, and very gracious person who puts everyone before herself. Now it's our turn to help her. No amount is too small to help this wonderful friend of mine in a time of need. Thank you. -Peggy

Please pass this on to anyone who has been touched by Kat's friendship, generosity and wonderful loving spirit.
