Meet Kaitlin

Young adult cancer patients are too old for support progams like Make a Wish, yet too young to have their own resources:

Meet  Kaitlin --

My life was awesome! I was a senior in High School. I got really good grades & an awesome scholarship to the college I was going to attend. 2 days before my senior prom, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. It was a whirlwind.  Cancer took a lot, but it didn’t take everything. I AM STRONG! Stronger than I ever knew. I will fight this everyday until I “Beat it.” I would love to hear the ocean and see the palm trees or go to Disney.
