Story

Mile #188 Kate 

Kate Olivia Rhoades was the love of our lives. She was diagnosed with high risk pre-b cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia when she was 26 months old. She was remarkable through treatment and finished on time on September 14, 2015 after 25 months. She started to live…really LIVE. First trip to the beach, first day of school, first real family vacation..and then she relapsed. 15 hours after we learned that the leukemia she had just beat 4 months prior was back, she died in the PICU from multiple organ failure. Kate’s cancer has a reputation for being the “good cancer”…the most treatable and with the best success rate. However, we’ve learned that to be anything but the case. She never had a chance to try to beat it again.

From “she’s perfect” to “she’s relapsed” took four months. From “she’s relapsed” to “there’s nothing more we can do” took 15 hours.

Kate Olivia. Forever four.
