Help Katherine raise money

For participating in Courage Over Cancer 5K & 10K Run Walk

My Story…

I am a gastrointestinal oncologist at UCSF's Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. This event started as a brainstorm from the husband of a beautiful, vibrant young woman I cared for who died from colorectal cancer tragically young. Even years later, I still think of this woman often and remember her bright smile and courageous spirit so vividly. Her husband, Tim, gave the race its name "Courage Over Cancer" and did most of the work to make this a reality! It is amazing that it is finally happening! Everyday I am inspired by my patients and their families, and I am honored to celebrate their courage with this event! Please rally your team of friends and family! Your generous contributions will support innovative research and the development of programs to promote wellness for our patients with gastrointestinal cancers. I hope to see each of you there!
