Hamilton cancer victim Kathrine Scott in remission

Jasper — Kathrine Scott of Jasper, who was diagnosed with brain cancer in early 2013, is now in remission after a long battle with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

Scott and her husband have been regular attendees at Hamilton County Commission meetings, even while she was going through cancer treatments. On Tuesday, March 4, Commission Chair Josh Smith gave her special recognition.

Scott underwent surgery last July to remove the largest of several tumors at the base of her skull, and then she endured a series of radiation treatments, as well as chemotherapy.

The House Saloon in Jasper held a benefit for Scott in October, 2013, to raise funds to assist Scott with her medical bills and other expenses, such as travel, gas, and medications.

“I went from six months to a year to live, to no active cancer,” Scott told the commissioners.

Smith said, “The Lord was able to work in mysterious ways.”

“Absolutely,” said Scott. “I’m a firm believer. Everybody said they’d pray for me and those prayers really do help.”

“It’s always nice to hear good news,” said Smith. “There’s so much negative, it’s nice to hear something good. I hope your health continues to improve.”
