Remembering Kathi Goertzen

Brave, strong and courageous.

Kathi Goertzen was all that and more in her fight against brain tumors. She shared her struggles with all of us and helped others who face the same battle. She was so dedicated to the fight that she launched this foundation in 2011 to help others. If you knew Kathi personally, or through her 30 years on air at KOMO 4 Television in Seattle, her tireless community service or as a fanatic WSU Cougar - you know she approached her health challenges with personal strength, humor and a deep faith.

She chose special qualities in its creation: Inspire. Hope. Cure. These are the principals Kathi Goertzen built her foundation on to figure out what causes brain tumors. At that time, Kathi said, "My hope is that someday we're going to find a cure and I know it's around the corner."
