Katie's wish began as a simple act of kindness. While facing regular chemo treatments at Children's, Katie formed a relationship with a little girl who was also fighting childhood cancer. That little girl, who was full of courage and hope, was terrified of having her port accessed.
Katie realized that if her little friend had a treatment buddy with a port just like hers, she might not be so afraid of it. This was the start of Katie's Treatment Buddies; the cuddly bears that have ports in them... just like the ones our special friends have.
In celebration of World Wish Day, we're granting Katie's wish to expand her treatment buddies, and we want you to be part of the action!
