Wow - thank you, Katie and family, for an inspirational story. I'm sure you've changed the lives of many people.
My brother was diagnosed with cancer when he was in high school - he's been cancer free for over 18 years now. It's because of people like the Hageboeck's that he has survived. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Thank you Katie for your amazing gift!!! I am sure you are smiling down from heaven now everytime another family gets the precious news that their child is in remission. I can only begin to imagine all the lives you have touched since you went to heaven.
Thank you Katie's parents for your amazing work and your gift of love!!
Fabulous way to honor a smart, brave little girl who thought of others before herself.
We adults can hopefully learn a lesson on courage and strength from kids like Katie. I'm always amazed how children face issues like this. So many times they look beyond themselves and their problems to see how they can help others.
had the courage, vision and wisdom of this young girl and her family.
brings tears to my eyes reading about it.
It is sad to think of children dying...they deserve better and live lives of security and protectedness. But the horrible thing about cancer is it impacts anyone young or old. Congrats to the wise parents for their stewardship with the funds. They have carried on the hope of their daughter. Nice story, thanks for posting.
and what an inspiration this child should be to us all!! AMAZING!
