Magnolia resident Kathi Goertzen faces surgery

September 18th, 2008 · 41 Comments

KOMO TV anchor and Magnolia resident Kathi Goertzen announced today that she will face a fourth surgery for a brain tumor.  In a letter to viewers on the KOMO website, she explained that the experimental drug she used following her recent surgery was not successful and the tumor has grown back.

Kathi’s long time co-anchor Dan Lewis, fighting back tears, explained the situation to viewers just prior to the 5pm newscast tonight. 

Goertzen has been battling the brain tumor for more than a decade.  Her third surgery was in April and she had just recently returned to her anchor dutires.   Goertzen said she is scheduled for surgery Wednesday to remove as much of the tumor as possible. The surgery will be followed by radiation treatment.

KOMO TV has set up a way for people to send encouraging messages to Kathi on the website

 Goertzen and her husband live in Magnolia along with their two daughters.

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
