Donations for Katie

Hi all,

I wanted to take a moment to tell you about my friend, Katie. She's been battling lymphoma for over a year now, and her story is truly amazing. I've watched her struggle first hand, and I've seen her look the cancer square in the face with the resolve she'll need to beat it. Katie's energy, positive attitude, and determination constantly inspire me.

With medical expenses always on the rise, Katie (a freelance artist) and her husband (a musician) are struggling to make ends meet. Katie told me that she recently missed a dose of life-saving immune boosters because that single dose would cost $1,200 and they just didn't have the money. Katie's supposed to get these injections regularly but often misses them due to financial constraints.

Unwilling to watch her continue to suffer without the pain medication, immune support, and other vital things she needs, a group of her friends are stepping in to help.
