Kati Lorge - Black Heart Traveler
Welcome! Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read about our girl Kati, and her story.
Kati knew she had a brain aneurysm for only a couple of weeks. On September 5th, 2020 at the young age of 28, she passed away from the result of that aneurysm. She was loved by family, friends, co-workers, her life partner, and her dog Macklin. Kati’s love of life was highlighted in everything she did. She loved spending time with her friends and family no matter how far she had to travel or what the adventure was. She primarily loved to travel. Iceland, Europe, Vancouver, a road trip from Arizona to Utah, to driving from Wisconsin to Yellowstone National Park, was only the beginning of her travels, plus many other journeys.
It is through The Black Heart Traveler (@blackhearttraveler) that we try to carry on Kati’s legacy to take her with us on our travel adventures no matter how big or small. The goal behind this project is to purchase the stickers (two options) and take a picture with them somewhere you have traveled and then post to social media tagging @blackhearttraveler. We want to see how far across the world we can reach and share Kati’s story. We have a map on the Instagram/Facebook pages to show all the pictures.
Black Heart Traveler has already raised $20,000 prior to setting up this page, and will continue to keep this going! BHT is raising awareness and funds for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, and we have set up this Memorial Page for Kati Lorge. The Kati Lorge Chair of Research was funded by all of the proceeds of the stickers and other donations, by all of you - the BHT fam and followers.
Kati lives on through her family, friends, and complete strangers traveling across the globe sharing her story and her love of life. When she would be asked, “what is your favorite vacation?” her response was always, “the next one.”
The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is the world's only nonprofit organization solely dedicated to providing critical awareness, education, support and research funding to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysm ruptures. With your support, we can start making a real investment to help fight the devastation caused by brain aneurysms and save lives. All donations are tax-deductible and every dollar raised goes to help support the mission of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.
If you cannot make a donation at this time, please forward this e-mail and link to everyone you know. Post this on your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages (tagging in Black Heart Traveler). Every donation counts, no matter what the amount.
