On September 14, 2009 Katie was diagnosed with a Neuroblastoma tumor in her chest. The Valerie Fund was instrumental in educating our family and getting us through surgery. Thanks to the doctors and nurses at the Valerie Fund for getting us through this difficult time. Katie had the privilege of being a Valerie Fund Ambassador this year. She has attended Camp Happy Times for the last 6 years and has had the time of her life. She is a happy and thriving 12 year old who loves soccer and softball. We are all looking forward to the walk!
