Katie was first diagnosed with a brain tumor in May 2011. She completed a full round of chemotherapy and radiation and later returned to full-time work as a physical therapist. But in early April of this year, she was readmitted to the hospital and diagnosed with an aggressive stage 3 tumor. She received radiation for several weeks as an inpatient and then went home to be with her children, husband, family, and friends and receive hospice care until the end.
