We are walking for TEAM KBC for the second year in a row! We raised over $90,000 in eight days last year. We can do this again!!!
On Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 with no previous symptoms and just 73 days shy of her wedding, Katie passed out at home. She woke up, called her doctor and went to the emergency room. Following a series of tests, doctors discovered a tumor in the top right side of her brain, and scheduled surgery for removal.
On Thursday, March 30th, Katie underwent a successful surgery at Northwestern hospital to remove the tumor and wait for pathology results. The results were not what doctors had expected, Katie's tumor was a rare Glioblastoma that started as low grade and quickly morphed into a grade 4 aggressive tumor.
Now, almost one year later, Katie has completed treatment and has a handfull of clear MRI's in her pocket. We pray for many more clear scans! When someone you love goes through the unimaginable, you fight back.
Please join the cause. Walk, run or donate. Now for the support and donations for a cancer we can eliminate. Walk with us on Sunday 4/22/18 to end brain cancer! We are walking and raising funds for Katie Bishop, Brandon Starkoff, Melissa Benham, Jane Pope Cooper, Rachel Kuna, PJ Lukac, Julianna Schafer, Matt Hickle [our late uncle] and so many others. We need this to be a thing of the past.
