What would you do if you found out your life partner was doing meth, what if the lies didn't stop? What if after all that trauma and becoming a solo parent you get a terminal cancer diagnosis? No family around to help. No options. What would you do?

Kate is heroic, some may even say a little mad, because Kate thinks she can beat this death sentence and she even put a timeline on it. 365 days. Is this possible?
What does it entail?

This is a conversation that covers trauma, how to deal with betrayal, fighting disease and the power of a mothers love.
