About Katherine

Katherine Lawrence grew up in Louisiana and joined the Air Force after graduating from college as an Aerospace Engineer. She served in the USAF for 4 years at locations including Pensacola, Florida, Ft. Walton Beach, FL, Wichita, KS, Tabuk, Saudi Arabia and Kirkuk, Iraq. She later moved to Ft. Worth, Texas to work as an engineer at Bell Helicopter. She has always had a passion for cooking and food - she made weekly meals for her classmates, troops and friends. She was well-know for her strawberry cream cheese pie and chicken & sausage gumbo, two staples in her diet.

In 2006, Katherine began to have severe abdominal pain. After several misdiagnoses over 5 months, her doctor determined she had severe endometriosis. It had spread beyond her ovaries and fallopian tubes, and formed adhesions around her intestine. Typically, endometriosis can leave scar tissue on the reproductive organs, sometimes leading to infertility. Her doctor told her there was no cure for endometriosis and she must have surgery to remove it. Furthermore, she would have to take medicine to put her into early menopause in order to keep it from coming back. He also advised that she would eventually need a hysterectomy.
