Your daughter's journey of strength and compassion for others will always be amazing and inspiring. Her story has been shared with our two girls who lost their biological father to cancer. If her foundation offered kid size bracelets - our girls would proudly wear them in her memory. Katie has touched the lives of so many. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
