What would you do if you found out your life partner was doing meth, what if the lies didn't stop? What if after all that trauma and becoming a solo parent you get a terminal cancer diagnosis? No family around to help. No options. What would you do?

Kate is heroic, some may even say a little mad, because Kate thinks she can beat this death sentence and she even put a timeline on it. 365 days. Is this possible?
What does it entail?

This is a conversation that covers trauma, how to deal with betrayal, fighting disease and the power of a mothers love.

Disclaimer: this podcast is intended for entertainment purposes and to share Kate's story, not to be taken as medical advice. For medical advice consult your doctor.

If you want to support Kate head to @maisonandmaison and purchase a lovely item. This is how she raises money rather than a gofundme page.
