Kathi Goertzen, a TV news anchor on KOMO in Seattle, has died
after battling brain tumors for 14 years. In 2011, she candidly discussed how it felt to be in the public eye
after a tumor caused one side of her face
to become paralyzed.
Kathi was first diagnosed with a rare form of meningioma
back in 1998. When she was profiled in the Seattle Times
in May, 2012, along with her two daughters, she was recovering from her 9th surgery.
The Kathi Goertzen Foundation
was formed to "support research for cures and encourage patients in their battles against brain cancers and tumors."
