God dammit. When we birthed Fempire with a gaggle of gals around my diningroom table, the hope was that we'd bring like-minded women together. Women who inspired each other, supported each other and made each other laugh in the best and worst of times. Today the group has over 17,000 women and Karen touched us all with her posts, her championing and her bravery. Karen was a Femp on every level. So strong and so fucking inspiring. I'll never understand why this world takes so many amazing people from us. I struggle with it daily and today we feel like we got kicked in the stomach. We'll miss Karen and are we're all so eternally grateful to her for showing us all how to be better, how to be brave and how to simply be. Fuck Cancer.
