On April 19, 2018, Heaven gained a new Heavenly Star – my daughter, Kaitlin Angeline Shannon.

Kait was a bright, gifted and talented young woman who excelled at pretty much everything she put her mind to – including math, calculus, piano and singing (even opera).

She excelled in her courses at Carleton University where she managed to complete 3 years of her business degree in between radiation and chemo treatments as she fought her valiant fight against cancer. Plus she tutored students. This fall, she will be awarded a special Certificate of Achievement in recognition of her accomplishments.

She was only 23 when she succumbed to her 4 year battle with cancer but she did more in that short time than many people accomplish in a lifetime. Following her funeral, a musical celebration of her life was held where over 20 musicians came from as far away as Toronto, Ottawa and Prince Edward Island to sing as a memorial tribute to her. Over 800 in attendance helped contribute to close to $15,000 raised to date for the development of what we created called “Kait’s Comfort Kits” – a kind of survival kit for those hospitalized with cancer – a way to add some normalcy into the abnormalcy of hospital living. Kait’s Comfort Kits will include natural lip balm, moisturizer, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, soft face cloths & hand towel and soft kleenex. Kait and her Mom also developed a concept for a booklet with tips & insights to help patients, loved ones, family & friends cope with hospital life.
