My 8 year old daughter had to go to hospital last night because she hasn’t been feeling well. After she was admitted at Boundary Trails Hospital, she was scared and tired and the nurse on duty brought in this wonderful bag full of items labeled Katie Cares. It sure helped the process!! Thank you so much for providing something so small to help make kids feel a little bit better about being in such a scary place.
I do not know Travis’ family nor anyone affiliated with Katie Cares, but I was following Travis’ story in the news and it led me to your organization. Katie seemed like such a generous, wonderful girl. I just lost a friend to cancer, and also have young children so your charity is the perfect place to donate. I am so happy to help out!!
Kaitlyn’s initial stay in hospital was 7 weeks. The hospital admissions also consisted of the following: 4 ICU, 2 ambulance trips to Winnipeg, 4 Emergency admissions, plus numerous clinic visits to Children’s Cancer Clinic appointments, as well as year long chemo treatments in hospital.
Kaitlyns Own Statement
“At age 13 I was diagnosed with cancer, I spent 7 weeks in the hospital. Being in hospital opened my eyes to the amount of children fighting cancer without family. I wanted to do all I could to make it better for the other children which gave me the idea to start this charity.”
Located across the street from Boundary Trails Health Centre, Katie’s Cottage allows you to stay close to your loved ones when they need you the most.
