Strong. Tenacious. Determined. Stubborn. Resilient. 

These are just a few words I’d use to describe my younger sister, Cat King, 47y/o married, mom of 3, artist, incredible loving giving amazing friend, with a heart overflowing with kindness and love.

Cat is currently battling stage 3 pancreatic cancer. She underwent robotic Whipple surgery on 1/6/22, and started aggressive chemotherapy 6 weeks later. She’s completed 5/12 treatment sessions, and pushes onward, dealing with side effects, and matter of factly stating, “It is what it is” while continuing on with her day, caring for her family.

My brother in law jokingly compares her to Wolverine – the badass MARVEL character that heals himself – and he’s totally spot on! Cat is in a league of her own when it comes to fighting this awful disease, and she’s determined to rid her body of every last inkling of cancer.

We formed our team, Cat King Crusaders, to help raise funds to support patients and families affected by pancreatic cancer, and provide means for further research and treatment development. 

Please considering donating and/or joining our team: Cat King Crusaders
