My Story

May 5, 2008 will mark 22 years since Katharine was diagnosed with infant ALL. The doctors weren't sure she would survive, but her stubbornness pulled her through! She has suffered brain damage as a side effect of her chemo treatments, but is still the happiest child on earth! She loves everyone is always ready to greet people with a smile, a hug, and sometimes a kiss! Katharine loves being with people, eating out, music and dogs, especially the three we have.
