Hi! Welcome to my site.. Feel free to browse around.. This is where I manage all of my other sites, blogs, articles, products, etc.
I am Maria Kathrina Lopez Yarza. Everyone calls me Kcat and most of my close friends (especially from high school) calls me Tack. KCAT is the GCF of kat & cat - it's something I made up because there are lots of kat or cat in the world and I wanted to be unique, hence the spelling.
I was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis (NF) Type 2, a very rare genetic disorder of tumor growth in the nerves, including the brain area. It affects 1 out of 25,000 people; and I represent that 1 person with NF2. Apparently, I also have NF type 1 thus I represent 1 out of 3,000 as well. I have multiple tumors around my body. It damaged my auditory nerve and caused me total deafness. It affected my motor skills and caused paralysis on my left extremities and facial muscles. I am sick and can't do the things that I used to do, but that doesn't stop me from living and doing the things I want and the way it should be.. as long as I CAN!
