Courage For Katie

If you are on Facebook, I encourage you to join the group COURAGE FOR KATIE. Katie's mom is doing an amazing job of sharing her daughter's fight against leukemia. If you ever wondered what it is like to have a child with cancer, her posts will show you the ups, downs, challenges and small miracles these families face. She shares how simple acts of kindness from Connor's Heroes are making a difference. (Take a look at her hospital room that was decorated by a Connor's Heroes volunteer.) Many of her pictures include our other Hero kids and their parents. It is an amazing community! I thought this one photo was especially touching. Katie is on her way to yet another appointment as she prepares for her bone marrow transplant. She's holding hands with her dad who's proudly toting her Connor's Heroes Backpack on his back. Katie is one of a hundred families who suddenly find themselves in the world of cancer. Discover what is in the Connor's Heroes Bags and Backpacks and how you can help fill the next one for a Hero!
