I want to personally thank everyone for taking care of the trollers on Katherine’s page. You are all so supportive, and understanding. Even when the #truth of our posts, are tough to swallow, you know we’ve lived it, and you are supportive of our decision to share our life and spread the word about this awful disease. #KatherineTheBrave received a 0% survival rate. She was given 0% funding for her cancer, #DIPG, from the government. We had to reach far into the depths of our lost souls, and beg for any hope in this nightmare. We fought tooth and nail, and were not awarded for our efforts. She suffered… so much. Our baby suffered. We promised Katherine to fight for her. We promised her that we would use her story to keep other kids from suffering her fate. We promised her transparency. She wanted us to share her story. She smiled for every picture. In fact, if she didn’t smile, she made me delete the picture, and take it again. She’s not smiling anymore. At least here on earth. But that doesn’t make this any less tragic. So, if they don’t want to witness the truth about pediatric cancer, than I am sorry, but I will not stop showing the hell we experienced, that she experienced. I know it’s hard for families going through this as well, to witness the possible future, but it’s real, its raw, it’s what they are experiencing too, and this is why they can’t look at it. It’s hard, I know…. However, my posts are no more graphic than what we saw every day at the hospital, and with our new cancer families children, who have died as well. We were surrounded by it. Why is Facebook any different? It’s not, and its the best place to make her name known, and to spread the truth, and to help find a cure. As I’ve said before, confidentiality and secrecy is what killed my daughter, transparency will help cure this awful disease, DIPG. As people see it here, and as they get angry about this truth, it will scream volumes over a few stragglers in a hospital, experiencing it first hand. In Katherines name, I will not stop showing the truth, until we have a cure. I apologize for anyone we’ve offended, but feel free to remove yourself, or… we will. You could also choose to become witness to this tragedy as it played out to us, think differently, and help us fight.
Thank you… #MommaTheBrave and #DaddyTheBrave
