Katie's Wishing it Forward

Katie’s wish began as a simple act of kindness. While facing regular chemo treatments at Children’s, Katie formed a relationship with a little girl who was also fighting childhood cancer. That little girl, who was full of courage and hope, was terrified of having her port accessed.

Always interested in helping others, Katie realized that if her little friend had a treatment buddy with a port just like hers, she might not be so afraid of it. This was the start of Katie’s Treatment Buddies; the cuddly bears that have ports in them… just like the ones our special friends have.

Watch it Live

On April 29, Katie's wish will come true. We want to give you a front row seat, so join us on Facebook live on World Wish Day to experience the wish that will keep on giving!
