I Did it for Kate!

Mitchell, a young man that attends our church, decided after he saw Jackson's shaved head that the other youth in our church should show their support for Kate by shaving their heads. I don't think that he had tons on support in this matter, but he was persistent in wanting to do it anyway. So, the other night he came to our house and had Kate help shave his head. It was such a sweet gesture of support from a thoughtful teenager. (and you thought that teenager and thoughtful were oxymorons! )


Mitchell made this T-shirt for the event and planned to wear it to school the next day for the unveiling of his do.




This story is one of many that I will try to remember and post for you all to hear. There are dozens of similar ones from our community as they continue to reach out to Kate and our entire family. We are so very blessed!

Why did that dumb teenager have to go and make me cry?..... This is pretty cool.

Hey Kate guess what I did last night for my birthday? I shaved my hair so I can look just like you. I love you.

That is such a touching gesture. I’m sure it made Kate feel so special. Does she have a little crush on her new friend now? :) Too sweet! Every time I see her little face I can't get over how adorable she is and those dimples are to die for (Like mother like daughter)

Hi. We have never met, but I was snooping on your blog (thanks to Emily Downen) and couldn't stop myself from reading. I think your family left Ann Arbor as I moved there. I had to comment to tell you that when I was three I was diagnosed with A.L.L. I feel like I have gotten to know Kate a bit through your blog and love her so much. I am sure that sounds strange. I just want to let you know that if ever you want to talk about it or have questions from a leukemia survivor, I would love to talk. I had chemo for nearly 4 years so I do remember quite a bit. Sadly enough. I will keep Kate in my prayers. She is beautiful. Sorry for snooping. :)
