The Loss of a Great Person and Classmate – Kayte’s Story

A few months back I posted about Kayte, a classmate of mine in pharmacy school.  She had been diagnosed with colon cancer and was determined to fight.  Unfortunately, she lost her battle.  I can’t help but think of what my dad used to say when I was kid, “life’s not fair”.  Life isn’t fair, and it wasn’t fair to Kayte or her family.  I’m taking a break from educating tonight, because I would appreciate anything you could offer to Kayte’s family.

A few wonderful classmates of mine (and Kayte’s) have started a scholarship fund to help pay for college for her and her husband’s three young children who will grow up without their mother.  Please follow the link below.

Another friend from my class summed up Kayte beautifully.

“The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it – basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them.” -Charles Bukowski, Tales of Ordinary

“She lost her battle with cancer, leaving behind the family she loved dearly. Please consider donating – generosity is powerful.”

Click here to read her story and consider donating – I would also ask you to share this post with your fellow pharmacist, nursing, medical, and other healthcare friends on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets.
