Kate' Crazy Cool Christmas

I've been following the story of Kate and her battle with a brain tumor since this summer, thanks to Amanda and Jess's blogs. It is a heart wrenching look at what a family goes through when battling cancer. Most days after reading it, my stomach aches just thinking about what they're dealing with. And yet, like Jess and Joel, theirs is a story of steadfast trust in the Lord and his plan for their Kate.

In the last week, Kate's mom has shared that they'd like to collect gifts for the other children on Kate's cancer floor. I'm going to send some things. If you'd like to help make a sick child's Christmas even better--check out their Caring Bridge site. They're adding Bibles to each gift too, so that those children have a chance to know Jesus if they don't already.

Here's the specifics...
Send NEW gifts to:

Cornerstone Christian Fellowship
Attn: Kate's Crazy Cool Christmas
2211 E Pecos Rd Ste. 2
Chandler, AZ 85225

They'd like these to arrive by Dec. 15th so they can wrap and package them. What a sweet way to give to families in need this year!

YES!!! I want to do this too, I'll post on my blog too soon. I thought this is such a great idea. I hurt so much for them, but I also think about the LIGHT that family is there at that hospital for all the other families walking those halls. Can't wait to see them on Dr. Phil!

I read about her each day too. It is so painful. I remember when Mindy had back surgery when she was young, a Dad and a boy came to bring toys to each kid on the floor. It happened to be the birthday of the son/brother that had died and each birthday, they celebrated by bringing toys to the peds unit. We still have that toy and I think of that family when we get it out.
