Katie - September, 2001
this isn't something that an young girl should have to know,
unfortunately, Katie has reached understanding of life that
most adults haven't touched.
Katie was 6 years old she was diagnosed with cancer. She had
Tumor in her right kidney. While she was being flown to
Rochester, MN for emergency surgery, Katie saw the light. She
saw herself on the bed and met her angel. The Lord spared her
and returned her to her family and home - but her fight continues.
May 1997 two more tumors were found in her left lung. She had
to go through the surgical removal of these tumors and of her
left lung. It didn't end there. In September four more were
found in her right lung. Christmas of 1997 found Katie too sick
to enjoy the holiday. In fact Christmas had to be postponed
as the risk of catching contagious diseases was too high for
Katie to be exposed to visitor. Katie fought with Chemo Therapy
through the winter. Her Aunt Diane had this page built for her
in January of 1998. At that time she was too sick to go to school
and the prognosis on her condition was grave. Her mother had
to quit her job to be home with her full time and she spent
the winter in and out of hospitals. The Chemo Therapy that was
to save her ravaged her body bent on destroying all rapidly
growing cells (in a child all cells are rapidly growing.) Below
are updates as she progressed through the winter with a lot
of prayers from a lot of wonderful "cyber" friends visiting
these pages. Finally, in July it was decided that anymore Chemo
treatments would be too risky - the Chemo was stopped and Katie
was put in God's hands. As you can see by the picture above
God took good care of her. Please pray that the cancer stays
gone this time and she will be able to live a normal life. Her
next check up will be later in March. I will update this page
again as soon as we have the results.
