Katharine’s world interweaves between the living and the dead.
Having the precision skills of a brain surgeon, she is able to help those who are ready to die and eases the transition for both the family and person preparing for death. She is known as the “Marianne Williamson of the dying” and when not helping a family, she is on the inspirational lecture circuit sharing the stage with the likes of Tony Robins, Deepak Chopra and Wayne Dyer.
On the way home from a talk, Katharine hears her best friend Barb’s voice saying “I don’t want to die without you”, Katharine rushes to Seattle and her hospital bedside. Barb has been battling cancer for the past decade…dogged belief in her capacity to heal has kept her alive.
But now with Barb teetering on the brink of death, Katharine arrives believing she is there to save the day by helping Barb make a peaceful transition…of course Barb will have none of that.

The room is the typical blank walled pea green. The overly
loud hum of numerous machines and forced air dominate.
Katharine gingerly opens the door tiptoeing to Barb’s
bedside. Whitney follows.
Bev is asleep. Multiple tubes tie her to numerous machines.
