It is with a breaking heart that I write to let you all know that Katie died at 4am
Sunday the 21st of February
Katie faced the end with the remarkable strength, courage, determination, control and dignity that have been the hallmarks of her life and of her year long battle with ovarian cancer.
I would encourage you all to take the time to view her video here in which she talks about the signs to be aware of regarding ovarian cancer. It may save your life or that of a woman you love.
Katie requested to keep Go Fund Me Campaign going for a week after her passing so it will end midnight this Saturday the 27th of February to allow time for those of you who have not yet donated but wish to do so to help her with her end of life expenses, including her funeral. You can also assist by sharing this campaign link https://www.gofundme.com/help-katie-beat-it with your social networks on Facebook, Twitter etc.
Thanks you for your support, encouragement and love.
Our family has been so touched by your generosity and care at this difficult time.
Love Julie Hickson
