This fund is created to honor the life and fighting spirit of Kathy Kowalenko.
Kathy was born May 2, 1950 and was a lifelong resident of Enfield, CT. Kathy was a caring mother, sister, and daughter. She also cared a great deal about the children of Enfield, working in the school system as a Library Assistant as well as volunteering her time with various organizations to enrich their lives even further.
Kathy was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma in June of 2013 and throughout her four-year battle she inspired many with her positive “can do” attitude, resilience, and physical strength, despite developing debilitating tumors in her hips.
Kathy’s journey ended on June 5th, 2017 but our goal is to help her legacy live on and enable others to combat and eventually wipe out this exceedingly rare and aggressive disease.
