Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. Katie was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer January 8, 2016. This will be a long journey but not a lonely one. She is surrounded by a community of caring coworkers, exceptional care providers and an awesome base of loving neighbors, friends and of course family and church members. Katie is an admirable young artist and loving single parent to her six-year-old daughter Isabella who in fact keeps us grounded and focused. Please pray for her and for all of us as we venture through this journey together.
