JEWEL KATS In loving memory of wife, daughter, sister, niece, aunt, friend, artist, writer and disability advocate JEWEL KATS (Michelle Meera Katyal) passed away on January 7, 2016 with all beloved family members by her side. She was and continues to be an inspiration for all children with disabilities through her countless published children's books. Although gone too soon, she continues to inspire all beings with her incredible literature. She was full of life, laughter and fun. She touched everyone's heart one way or another. She will forever be remembered. May she rest in peace. As a former patient and volunteer at SickKids, we have set up a fundraiser to honor her legacy at jewelkats
