photos and words

Stories are waiting to be told.  Random ideas for stories and photos that are thoughtful. Photojournalism hit me when I was in college.  A photo of a young black girl protecting a white guy on the ground from a crowd of angry black men.  The strength of the image still inspires me.

I’m going to use KatRodgers.com as a personal website. My photography and design business has moved to EquineDesigns.net.

I choose joy and courage!

You can choose to be afraid.
You can choose to be filled with grief and sorrow.
Sometimes you have to do both.
You can also choose happiness.
Even on hard days, life is full of wonder and love, just waiting to be expressed.

Burkitt lymphoma and MRSA conquered!

my cancer story

Cancer attacked.
Loving family and friends, awesome doctors, nurses, and techs, sense of humor, faith, extreme stubbornness and positive attitude all have helped me thrive.  I’ve endured chemotherapy, spinal taps, blood and platelet transfusions, CT scans, MRIs, ultrasounds, and life-threatening infections.

Burkitt lymphoma and MRSA conquered!

Cancer is a monster that attacks not only physically and emotionally but financially. The cost to treat it and to stay healthy are enormous.

I need help to pay my continually growing medical bills.  EVERY donation will make an immediate impact! I am unable to pay my bills and pay for my drugs. I need help to get past this moment!

It’s going to take a bit to get my cancer story written.  My mind thrives in tangents and is easily distracted.  Outline format is what works for me this minute.  Thank you for your patience.
