Bismarck Couple Facing Terminal Illnesses Together


For years, Don Hertz dreamed of sailing around the world in retirement. Then he fell in love. Her name was Kathy Glass…Shortly after they were married, Don was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Eight years later, their lives were altered again…On a rainy day in Rochester, Minn., in 2010, Kathy was numb with disbelief as she sat behind the wheel of a minivan…Just minutes earlier, at the Mayo Clinic, an oncologist told her she had stage four ovarian cancer. Terminal. She had one to three years to live.
