Kathryn Chastain Treat – October 30, 1954 to December 21, 2014

December 23, 2014

I was deeply saddened to hear of Kathryn’s illness and sudden passing. She was a great and caring person, that came through on her blog. She helped me to better understand the world of allergies and sensitivities; to know that I wasn’t crazy because cherry soda make me drunk or Pepsi gave me a dry, hacking cough. My allergies have been easy to deal with, but there are thousands of others that aren’t so lucky. Kathryn’s help was as invaluable for them as for me, I’m sure. Her blog and book are the same title: Allergic to Life. I will miss her, but hope to see her again in heaven.

My condolences and prayers are with her family and friends, as well as her blogging friends.

The following words are from MCS Gal:

Kathryn made an impact in the blogging world. Kathryn blogged about Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and she wrote a book. Because of her book, her message continues to be shared.

I was sad to learn that Kathryn Treat passed away. But to be honest, I can’t be sad when I think of Kathryn. She is free. She is no longer limited by her MCS. She can mingle freely with all her family and friends who have previously passed away. She no longer needs a mask. She no longer needs to worry about her environment. She doesn’t have to wonder if someone really understands and is willing to accommodate. I think she is probably following the advice of her good friend Sonda and dancing.

I am sad when I think of her husband, children, and grandchildren who miss her. But, one day they will be with her again.

Kathryn accomplished a lot. She wrote and published her book. She educated a lot of people about MCS. Because of her efforts, life is easier for others who suffer from MCS.

Kathryn lives on
