Good News: Donations

I just received a note from Christina, who helps us with Katie's endowment at the Seattle Children's Hospital Foundation. Due to the generosity of family and friends, we have a new total in the principal of the Katie Gerstenberger Endowment for Cancer Research.

Christina wrote, "I thought you would like to know that the current fair market value of Katie’s endowment is $98,846, thanks to recent contributions from your family and friends. We are hoping that the stock market will continue to recover and to add value to all endowments at Children’s!"

Thank you for your generosity. Together, we can help to fulfill Katie's wish (and ours) to move cancer research forward (and the hope for better treatments and a cure). God bless you!
