Because of Katie

You may remember one of our writers Karen Gerstenberger and her posts about grieving and finding hope through the passing of her daughter Katie.

In the autumn of 2006, the Gerstenberger family's life changed forever with Katie's cancer diagnosis. Karen has written a book, Because of Katie, that shares their journey with her - through treatment, surgery, recovery, remission and beyond." I encourage all of you to check it out.

Paula D'Arcy, author of "Gift of the Red Bird" and "When People Grieve," calls her book "a beautiful, forceful story...the beauty of Katie, the mother's heart, the family's love, and the importance for the medical community to meet these harrowing moments of life and crisis with great awareness and care...Your words will be of such benefit to those who walk this path, and also those supporting them."

You may find Karen's book on and at

Karen also writes a blog at and is President of Katie's Comforters Guild at Seattle Children's Hospital.
