As a young mother of two little girls, beloved wife, daughter, sister and friend, Katie is currently facing one of the greatest battles of her life. After a routine self breast exam, Katie discovered a suspicious lump causing great concern. She scheduled an appointment with her doctor and was quickly rushed for an immediate biopsy. While the doctors were uncertain of what the test results would reveal, the family began preparing for a breast cancer diagnosis. What they weren't prepared for was the news they would receive next.
On January, 17, Katie was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Because this type of cancer is aggressive, so too is her treatment. Katie and her family immediately packed their bags and traveled to Houston, TX to meet with MD Anderson's team of trusted Oncologists where Katie has already begun receiving intensive chemotherapy treatment. Katie's family has rallied together to help her on this journey, but the bills are quickly piling up. Hotel expenses ($160 per night), medical bills, childcare and costs of daily living will be a temporary challenge for this beautiful young family of four, but with your support and continuous prayers, we're confident we can help Katie fight this!
In lieu of flowers, cookies or anything yummy, the family asks for donations to help Katie and Jason with expenses related to uninsured medical treatment, family and household expenses, and travel needs. Thank you for your kindness, prayers and help proving to the world that hope, love and family always prevails!
If you’re compelled to join us in prayer, please pray that Katie has the form of AML that is treatable and curable. No prayer is too big for our God!
