How do you navigate the labyrinth of pain and loss and find a spark of hope? How do you transform personal tragedy into a beacon of light for others? These are questions that our guest today, Kat Morris, faced when she lost her vivacious daughter, Kandis, a passionate Marine Osprey pilot, to stage four colon cancer. Kat's story is both heartbreaking and inspiring. From recounting Kandis' vibrant spirit and love for leadership, community service, and sports, to describing her harrowing battle with cancer, Kat's account provides a profound connection for anyone who has experienced a similar loss.
Kat illuminates us on her journey through grief, likening it to a black hole, and shares how she embarked on a path of self-discovery, finding solace in spiritual connections and research about grief. Her recounting of a dream where Kandis visits her is heart-rending and resonates deeply, revealing how her spiritual bond with her daughter has grown since her passing. Kat's resilience and unyielding spirit are truly remarkable, pulling her from the depths of despair to transform her grief into something purposeful and empowering.
Kat's dedication and love for her late daughter transcends into the creation of the Captain Kandis Cookie Ruiz Foundation (CKCRF), a nonprofit organization that offers comprehensive support to military personnel, civilians, and rugby athletes battling cancer. Her commitment to honoring Kandis' memory extends to other families navigating a similar journey, reinforcing her daughter's legacy of leadership and community service. Tune in to hear Kat's raw and breathtaking testimony of love, loss, and resilience, and discover how her
