Kate is Kicking Cancer!

Many of you received an email I sent not long ago asking for prayers for my sweet friend and sorority sister Katelyn. She was diagnosed with uterine cancer a few weeks ago. She has 2 small children, Avery (almost 3) and Owen (a little over 6 weeks). Her story is one to be inspired by and is a true testament to the power of prayer and extreme faith. Kate has been so strong through her rounds of chemo (3 so far), losing her hair, long periods of not being able to hold her little ones and all pain and emotions that come this disease. But, she is winning this battle! I continue to get encouraging emails that inform us that her hcg markers are decreasing and that the chemo is working. But, we must not stop praying. Even though she is so close to kicking cancer completely, we want to make sure she gives it one, big, mighty send off kick.

I thank each of you that has remembered Katelyn and her family in your prayers and ask that you continue to do so. Many of her friends and sorority sisters have sent care packages and provided meals. If you feel compelled to do more than pray for her and her family, please let me know.

Also, Lena, who is another friend and sorority sister is hosting an online trunk show for Katelyn with her company Stella Dot. You can purchase a piece of jewelry and 100% of her commission will be sent directly to Kate. Love this idea! (And the jewelry is really cute!)
