Fundraiser for Katie
Katie is a 3 year old little girl who enjoys playing with her brothers, coloring and playing outdoors. She was born with a very rare disease called Black-fan Diamond Anemia. It is a bone marrow failure disease in which she does not make any red blood cells. She has had 40 transfusions since birth. In addition she gets nightly infusions of medication 10 hours to help break down the overload of iron she gets from frequent transfusions. The only cure for Black-Fan Diamond is a Bone Marrow Transplant.

Katie has shown courage, even at an early age. When she goes to the hospital she often puts out her arm to get her “boo-boo” (IV). She spends 5-6 hours getting transfused while maintaining her spirit, all the while continuing to play not even realizing that the blood pumping into her veins is giving her life. Katie will be receiving a Bone Marrow Transplant at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital in NYC in March. If you would like to make a donation to her medical fund please forward to:
