Kathy Tank remembered during library presentation
book cover for "River of Hope"Kathy Tank, a UW-Eau Claire staff member who died Nov. 14, 2007, from complications related to Lou Gehrig's disease, will be remembered during a presentation titled "River of Hope: One Couple's Search for Healing from Lou Gehrig's Disease." The presentation will be held at 7 p.m. June 12 in the Eau Claire Room of the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library in Eau Claire.

David Tank, Kathy's husband and author of the new book "River of Hope: My Journey with Kathy in Search of Healing from Lou Gehrig's Disease," will present a brief program about his wife's battle with the disease. Kathy's inspiring and heartbreaking story of determination to beat a disease the "experts" told her was unbeatable reveals how she discovered a sense of hope through alternative approaches to preventing and treating her disease.
