It’s been said that it’s hard for one person to make a difference in the world.

I’ve been thinking a lot about one person who did make a difference. Even more remarkable, she was an eight-year-old.

Kate inspired many people here in Ottawa, and elsewhere, with her joy and determination. All the more impressive because she lived with a rare form of mitochondrial disease—so rare that she was the first person in the world ever to be diagnosed with it.

She literally changed the lives of others for the better. She was the embodiment of what is right with this world and what we should all strive for.” – Julie (Kate’s mom)

CBC did a story here.
