Hi and welcome to Donations for Katie! This blog is still under construction, but we're glad you stopped by.
This is a joint project among friends to help someone in need - our friend Katie, who was diagnosed with lymphoma over a year ago. Katie's story is so touching, and her courage and strength of spirit through this trial are inspiring. We know Katie's gonna beat this, and we just want to help her along the way. With medical bills and the cost of medication always on the rise, our goal is to raise as much money as we can to help her small family cope with the expense of fighting cancer. The cost of these treatments is staggering. One single shot of a life-saving immune booster costs $1,200. Katie is supposed to get them regularly, but can't because of the expense. Then there is the oral chemo element to her treatment, which alone will cost another $29,000-$57,000 a year.
One way we aim to help is with a huge silent auction. If you're the owner of a company (or a crafter) and would like to donate products for this auction, we would LOVE to hear from you! Not only is this a worthy cause in and of itself, but to thank you for your support we're also going to do our best to promote our generous sponsors like crazy! If you're interested in submitting something for the auction, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please follow our blog and keep an eye out for updates and auction information! We've already got some amazing things lined up that you won't want to miss.
