Please pray.

Wendy and Katie

My cousin Wendy's nine-year-old daughter, Katie, has been diagnosed with a diffusely infiltrative brain stem glioma. Wendy's family lives in Tallulah Falls in North Georgia, and she and Katie are staying with my Aunt Paula and Uncle Terry in Atlanta while Katie receives daily radiation treatments at Piedmont Hospital.

When we were growing up, Wendy and I lived behind each other - we shared a pool between our two houses. Our dads are brothers, and she is very dear to me.

Wendy has a page on CaringBridge where you can follow Katie's story: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/katieseaman/

There is also a group on Facebook called "Praying for Katie Seaman" that you can join if you have a Facebook account.

Katie is a precious little girl with a sweet, gentle spirit. I would truly appreciate your prayers for her.

I'm so sorry to hear that about Katie. Please let me know if you need anything or have any questions...I have taken care of many kids with the type of tumor she has.

How sad. Does it seem that more children are experiencing battles with cancer or other serious ailments these days? We personally know 4 at the moment. Very scary!
Will pray.
