    very best wishes to you Kate, with love and prayers x

    Dear Auntie Kate:

    Difficult news, but thank you so much for sharing it with us.

    My father had the same thing--a small tumor on the upper lobe of his right lung. His surgery--this was nearly 30 years ago--was completely successful, with no follow-up chemo necessary.

    Dear Auntie Kate, you are surrounded by so many souls who love you. I am just one of them.


    Best of luck to you, Kate. Sending you love and good wishes from Germany.

    Jo/e Noakes

    I'd kiss you even if it were catching! Good luck, Auntie!


    will be lighting a candle for you on the 25th and sending warm healing thoughts your way throughout the month. thank you for all you've given to me (and for what you will continue to give). xoxo

    Toni Amato

    You've got one queer priest keeping you in his Mass intentions.

    Julia J.

    Sending you queer love, healing energy, and lots of light. Thank you for your being!


    Love and healing to you Auntie Kate!


    Nobody ever wants a cancer diagnosis but you are right to feel optimistic given how early they caught it. Sending you lots of healing energy. Harness all the strength you have and let all the people who love you take care of you!


    Lots of good, healing, anti-cancer vibes being sent your way!

    Kate Black

    I'm so glad that you caught this early, and just as glad that Barbara is looking out for you.

    So much love.

    Katrina Fox

    Sending you and Barbara lots of love and healing vibes, Kate :) xx

    DK Leather

    Just love, and much of it xxx


    Gigantic hugs to you and Barbara from Ireland... sending healing and love xxx


    That's the best bad news I've heard in a while, I guess. Here's hoping that it goes perfectly and that you bounce back quickly into doing lots more of the wonderful work you do. - Hugs, Janet

    Kellie, Nicole & Zak

    Sending lots of Drapeau/Roche love from here in Rhode Island!!!

    Michele Sugg

    Sending love and light your way, Kate. You have saved so many lives by just being you! See ya on the other side of your healing, and hey, I'll wrestle you anytime! :)


    I love you and am thinking about you. You're the only person I would dare allow to call me Little Sister, and you carry a piece of me everywhere that you go. Remember that!



    Sending Love and lots of healing positive vibes. From Oz Xxxx Jacq

    Be well Kate. Barbara is a very smart woman. And I am sure you know she is an amazingly giving person as well. Cancer loves sugar.... I learned recently.
    The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is supposed to be a strong cancer fighter,,,,, I googled it and found a lot of web sites that may be helpful.... Good luck!!!


    Oh Auntie Kate, I'm wishing you the best and glad it was caught early!

    You are a positively incredible human! If we (the people who respect and admire you) can collectively send a fraction of the love, support and inspiration I know you've brought--and will continue to bring--into our lives, I'm confident that'll be more than enough good ju-ju to get you through :)

    In admiration,


    Karen Stirling

    Best wishes for a healthy recovery kate.

    I met you and Barbara at Allen Lowen's death workshop at Omega. You both were so much fun.

    i will be thinking about you.
    Love to you and Barbara

    Sage Jacobs

    Love you, Kate. Sending you quick healing love vibes. So many people love you and are hoping to hear of your quick recovery soon. Big hug.

    Catherine Carter

    Dear Auntie Kate,

    Sending you bucket loads of good ju-ju! I can visualize you up in the ring pro wrestling with the best of them! You are in my heart and thoughts, as always. Much love to you, Cath Carter xox


    Much love, Kate.

    According to the Mayo Clinic website, the sugar/cancer connection is a myth. Avoid taking medical advice from people who aren't doctors. Just make sure you're getting enough food and a varied diet and you'll be fabulous.

    Know you are supported by the collective strength of your tribe.


    many healing thoughts to you....

    a devoted fan

    huge hugs & love to you.


    Kate, many blessings to you of whatever variety feels best to you. I'm glad they caught it early and hope you send it lovingly on its way, or kick it's ass all the way to hell, whichever you prefer.

    You and Barbara always have a place to stay wherever I am (currently Albuquerque). I don't have a hot tub and I don't cook Indian like David, but have a comfy bed and a Reiki session is always available to you.


    Queers to your swift and full recovery Kate! Know that you are loved.

    Konnor Crewe

    Hang in there. We are all behind you and thinking of you. Konnor.

    Ouch! (just watched E.T. yesterday, so...)

    A+ for focusing on the positivies here.

    Sugar-free love and hugs coming your way.


    All the best Kate. Will be thinking of you.


    Knowing you Kate you will pull through like the trooper you are. Love you!!


    Hi darling girl, Wish I could be there to go thru it with you. Great on the diet change! You have our blessings and positives all the way, day by day. Love you!! Hana


    Kate, Thank you for the bad and wonderful news.

    Barbara is so right about the anti-cancer diet. I was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive, metastasized cancer and given "about a year" initially now coming up on 5 years ago. I left the main stream methods and found a progressive group who treat with fully integrative methods (leading edge western oncology, naturopathic oncology, nutrition, eastern medicine, acupuncture).

    Based on my experience changing the physical environment from cancer friendly to anti-cancer was the key to recovery. Coming up on my 5 year milestone and still cancer free.

    Best to you in this part of your journey. So many good things can come from an experience like this!


    Dear Kate,

    I remember you from when you came to Harvard many years ago--I was a young and slightly insecure grad student. You were a bodacious, brilliant, funny loving and wondrous beam of light. Sending that love and light back to you, mama. You are the best...Love love love--


    Kate! I love that you are sill so positive. Much love coming from Hartford,CT as you are such an inspiration for me. Sending so many positive and happy thoughts your way.


    Kate, I'm glad the cancer was found early and can be removed. And no chemo! Wow, the blessings of modern medicine. One of my aunts had one of her right lung lobes removed two years ago (due to persistent, intractable pneumonia) and she's been fine since.

    Jackie Rudin

    Sending love and strength and gratitude .. you are a blessing and you will get blessings in return. much love and kisses. xo jackie

I will be beaming Reiki and lots of love to you on the day of your surgery. Imagine you will be carried by a thousand hands, all intent on bringing you to full health! That is the community that loves you and all of our thoughts and prayers and various magics, working for you. You have put so much love and understanding out into the world, now you get to reap what you have sown. May you come out the other side stronger and better and full of new wisdom!

    Love, from Chocolate Velvet

    You know, the absolute best sign that you'll recover well and that this will end up ok? Your positive attitude. You are so strong and awesome.


    I came to know about you from your input on the vv blog and then loads of other stuff. You don't know me but I would like to take the opportunity to send you get well wishes, you are an inspiration - so keep it up!


    I left a note in the wee hours, but included a link, so your site seems to have eaten it.

    I've been reading your book and hadn't seen you over at the Village Voice or our new commenters google group (no link this time), so I thought I'd stop by to see how you were doing. Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but very glad that the prognosis is a positive one. Wishing you lots of peace and a quick recovery.


    Elizabeth Wood

    Kate, fabulous brave and brilliant one, lots of healing thoughts and strength headed your way. And lots of excitement about the robots, too. I think the robots are a good omen :) Much love and gratitude for all you bring to this world, Elizabeth


    I wish you speedy healing and a long and healthy future.
    Thank you for all you have done and continue to do.
