Kathy's Kare

KATHY'S KAREIn 2005, at the age of 53, we noticed Kathy Knight beginning her debilitating descent into a quickly, progressive dementia, later diagnosed as severe Alzheimer's/Lewy Body Disease. Kathy was a dedicated and loving mother of two handsome boys. She was a great cook, homemaker, stellar painter and writer with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, graduating Cum Laude.We watched and wondered at the changes we saw. We were alarmed at her weight loss and the tremendous suffering that she was experiencing. This disease seemed to infect every area of her being and it most noticeably ravaged her ability to communicate and to comprehend. Even still, it was tragic that she was aware of her rapid decline and increasing deficits.Now, at the age of 59, six years into the disease, Kathy can no longer use the bathroom, bathe or dress herself, and cannot focus long enough to eat a meal but continuously paces in a seemingly agitated state. Essentially, she has deteriorated from a functioning to a non-functioning human being while still recognizing family.Kathy was a physically beautiful, bright, and kind-hearted woman with a gentle spirit who lost all of her connections with the world around her. Her son, Dusty, and daughter-in-law, Ariel, have been caring for her the past two years while raising two young children and obtaining their nursing degrees. The hardship has emotionally and financially taken a great toll on all. Through much prayer, a door finally opened to give Kathy the intense care that she needs ~ But we need your support.Castle Lounge would like to help this local family raise enough money to keep Kathy's Kare going!Please join us on September 8th at 2:00 p.m. for:KATHY'S KARE SPAGHETTI FEED FUNDRAISER$ 10.00/per plate(a small amount for a large cause)
