    I don’t like to dwell on sad news here, but Pati was very special. She fought very hard for treatment access for patients worldwide. She used her skills to make more strides than any other in a very short time. Her organization, M-ICAB was a sister group to MIF and she was a sister to me. I will miss her enormously.

    Our melanoma community has lost one of the best. Pati will always be remembered for the special gifts she gave to so many. The support and knowledge she offered was immeasureable.

    Catherine and Hein, I know how special Pati was to you both. You will always have that special gift in your hearts because you had the pleasure of knowing her personally.

    Our hearts are broken today with this tragic loss, but she will never be forgotten. She left a footprint on our hearts.

    My deepest sympathy goes out to her family. What a wonderful gift you had with Pati.

    Rest in Peace Pati. You have earned your wings. No more pain and suffering. Only beautiful, happy days ahead.

    Love,

    Shirley Z

    There are no words…

    Much love to her family, friends and all of the people who were so touched by her that she did not even know. She made a difference.

    This brought tears to my eyes. I followed Pati’s story and am very sad to hear the news. Rest in peace, Pati. You were such an inspiration to melanoma survivors of ALL stages!

    My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    Very sad news. Will be saying prayers for Pati’s family and friends (many on here) who will miss her so much. She was inspirational and as many have already said, was a heroine to so many people battling this dreadful disease. Rest in peace, Pati. You certainly gave it your all.

    So very sad for Pati’s family, Catherine, and all of us who have been touched by her endless giving. I cannot imagine being as brave and selfless – Pati will forever be a hero.

    Catherine and my MIF Family,

    I am devastated by this news as I know all others are. Pati was such an inspiration and leader and great supporter of all that we each strive to do, beat this disease. Prayers and love to her family. Prayers and love to each of you struggling here daily. I felt like I knew her.

    So very sad.

    This news is crushing. Given Pati’s spirit, energy, selflessness and leadership, her passing somehow seems highly unexpected despite her illness. She has been an inspirational to all of us and we will miss her greatly. Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and heart may fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:23-24

    I am so saddened by this news. I don’t post often but I do come to the board often. Pati was such an inspiration to everyone. To Catherine, I know you have lost a dear friend. My deepest sympathies to you, and to Pati’s family. May God give them comfort and peace.
