My Story

My name is Katie Ortega. I am 18 years old and on June 8th, 2012, I was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. When I first found out, it was hard for me to grasp that I would not be living a normal teenage life, but then I remembered that God does not give us something we can not handle. Those of you who know me well, know that i'm a fighter and i will win this battle. I have cancer, cancer does not have me. I have faith in God and I know he has a great plan for me at the end of this crazy journey. I thank God for everyone in my life. And thank you to All of you who have been keeping me in your prayers. God bless!
