Katie was diagnosed a second time with Metastatic Breast Cancer in 2016. She was recommended as a recipient by our Secretary, Amber, who has followed her on Twitter for over 5 years.
Katie lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and is a huge advocate for young women dealing with breast cancer by writing blogs, speaking publicly and raising money for cancer research.
Katie’s request was to attend a retreat at Sundara Inn and Spa in WI Dells, which Amber and Amy (with the foundation) had the honor to pick her up and take her to in May 2017.
Sadly, Katie passed away on June 21st, 2019 at the age of 35.
“Like a Prayer Foundation offered me a chance to be a woman living with a disease instead of dying from one” -Katie
