Those of you who have attended Foundation events over the past couple of years have likely heard Matt talk about the incredibly brave little girl, Kate, from California who, in November 2018, was diagnosed with ETV6 standard-risk childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Like Hank was, Kate is a fierce fighter. She, like many immuno-compromised patients, unfortunately, was also infected with Mucormycosis in 2018. The infection began attacking her nose, but thankfully her family found our Foundation, and Dr. Walsh was able to work quickly with her team of doctors at Children’s Hospital in LA to successfully combat the infection.
Fast forward to February 2021, and Kate has officially marked the end of her leukemia treatment by “ringing the bell”! We received this sweet video from Miss Kate not long after she rang the bell, and we could not be happier for her and her family. Way to go, Kate, you are a true warrior and are making Henry proud from up above! May your future be filled with continued love and an abundance of joy!
