This is my friend KATIE EMERSON RENZ. I call her Katie-Kate. I know her from being on the CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS Design Team. This is a picture of her with her children and husband in the hospital on Christmas Day. Katie has recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer and is currently undergoing Chemotherapy, her only option. I don't think I know anyone braver than my Katie-Kate. You may recognize her smiling face from the Clear Dollar Stamps blog. Katie has touched my heart with her spirit. It is very sad to see her go through this. Katie shares the details of her journey from the beginning on THIS blog post. She updates her BLOG regulary with her experiences. It personally touches my soul.

Katie's good friend JAK HEATH in the UK is doing a digi benefit for Katie and her family. You can read all the details on her blog HERE on how YOU can HELP KATIE.
