PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A Belle Vernon woman is in the fight of her life, but you would never know it.
Kate Crawford is positive, optimistic, and upbeat despite battling Stage IV cancer.
Crawford was diagnosed with breast cancer on January 25th. Within two weeks, she found out that the cancer had spread all over her body.
“The scans revealed that I was stage IV and that it had spread to both breasts, in my shoulder, down my ribs, in my liver, down my thoracic spine and into my pelvis,” said Crawford.
Crawford immediately started Chemotherapy treatments and came up with a “mommy bucket list.”
“I wanted to be able to record everything that I wanted to do and if I don’t get done with the list, at least they can look at it and they can know what dreams I had for them when I was a young mom,” said Crawford.
One item on Crawford’s list was meeting Bubba, morning radio show host for Star 100.7. Friday morning, Crawford was able to cross that item off her list. She joined Bubba on the air to share her story.
“I’ve always been a listener and I love your show and you make me laugh so hard, on the way to chemo every Thursday, that is what we listen to,” said Crawford.
Bubba, almost speechless, says he was humbled to be on Crawford’s list.
“Hopefully we can look back at this bucket list and say oh my, I really never needed that, that would be the best,” said Bubba.
Crawford is asking others to help her with her bucket list. If you’d like to see it, click here.
