Welcome to Bridget's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Bridget, is 6 years old. SIX.
Her nickname is SCOOCH...
She is a beautiful little soul that is equal parts smart, spunky and sporty. And, she gives a great side eye.
She's a little sister, a daughter, a friend and a teammate.
She loves to play soccer.
She loves to wrestle with her brother Brennan and all her boy cousins. She's the only girl in a rough, tough group of boy grandkids, but she holds her own.
She'll hold her own now too.
See, cancer doesn't see age -- because, she's only 6. If cancer saw age -- or knew what was good for it...it would have picked a different little girl.
Bridget was diagnosed on Friday (2/2) with an osteosarcoma. About a week prior she had leg pain that her mom and dad (Jamie and Eric Korn) thought was related to a recent injury. Thus far she has had an MRI and a bone biopsy both confirming her diagnosis of osteosarcoma on her tibia, above the ankle. She is scheduled for a PET scan and port placement early next week (2/5). Then she will start chemotherapy.
No one plans for this...emotionally, mentally, physically nor financially.
Prayers are the most important parts of these fights, but we must pay for the medicine to heal Bridget. The goal is to be cancer free....and, while the monetary goal is $10k, we are really unsure of the medical costs that the Korn family will endure. We may adjust along the way, however, TRUST that any funds that are not used will be donated to St. Jude’s in Bridget's name.
Thank you for any amount that you can spare at this time. Our family appreciates your generosity so much.
