The mother of one is known for her modeling days for Playboy and Sports Illustrated.  After her death, her family started a fund for her seven year old daughter on GoFundMe. The family wrote, “Anyone who was lucky enough to know Katie May was truly blessed by her incredible heart, mind and soul. She was an inspiration and a guiding light to so many people in this world. Please help us by donating money to support her daughter. We want to raise as much money for her daughter’s living trust as possible to ensure she will always be taken care of. Her daughter was Katie’s whole life, so please help Katie and her family by donating money.” The fundraising campaign has raised over $20,000 from over 170 contributors since it was launched on Feb. 4. The model apparently pinched a nerve in her neck after an accident at a photoshoot and asked for a “home remedy” on her Twitter before her death. She tweeted, “Pinched a nerve in my neck on a Photoshoot and got adjusted this morning. It really hurts! Any home remedy suggestions loves? XOXO” on January 29.
