The Story

As a young mother of two little girls, beloved wife, daughter, sister and friend, Katie is currently facing one of the greatest battles of her life. After a routine self breast exam, Katie discovered a suspicious lump causing great concern. She scheduled an appointment with her doctor and was quickly rushed for an immediate biopsy. While the doctors were uncertain of what the test results would reveal, the family began preparing for a breast cancer diagnosis. What they weren't prepared for was the news they would receive next. 


On January, 17, Katie was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Because this type of cancer is aggressive, so too is her treatment. Katie and her family immediately packed their bags and traveled to Houston, TX to meet with MD Anderson's team of trusted Oncologists where Katie has already begun receiving intensive chemotherapy treatment. Katie's family has rallied together to help her on this journey, but the bills are quickly piling up. Hotel expenses ($160 per night), medical bills, childcare and costs of daily living will be a temporary challenge for this beautiful young family of four, but with your support and continuous prayers, we're confident we can help Katie fight this! 


In lieu of flowers, cookies or anything yummy, the family asks for donations to help Katie and Jason with expenses related to uninsured medical treatment, family and household expenses, and travel needs. Thank you for your kindness, prayers and help proving to the world that hope, love and family always prevails! 


If you’re compelled to join us in prayer, please pray that Katie has the form of AML that is treatable and curable. No prayer is too big for our God! 


We're clinging to faith alone and holding onto this verse: "The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still." - Exodus 14:14

UPDATE: Katie has really declined in the past few days, and is in desperate need of your prayers. She is currently unable to walk or get out of bed & half of her body is going numb. An MRI tonight showed that the leukemia has spread to her spine and is suffocating some of her nerves. Her leukemia is very aggressive and is moving much faster than the chemo is able to work. Doctors are planning to stop chemo and start radiation tomorrow. Radiation is like dropping a bomb on the leukemia and will help to break it up quickly. Her doctors are still hopeful and have seen this happen before, and they have treated this type of case successfully! We know Katie will continue striving to be the same strong, fighting, & faithful woman. She is SO brave & courageous! We need BOLD prayers tonight, friends. We sit tonight at the feet of the Father, desperately and prayerfully asking Him for relief, rest, and restoration in Katie’s body. “Give ear to my words, O Lord; consider my groaning. Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray.” Psalms 5:1-2 Let’s flood the heavens with our prayers for Katie’s healing tonight ❤️🙏🏾 #katiestrongtx

Update: God answers our PRAYERS! Doctors found NO leukemia present in Katie’s bone marrow and Katie is still in remission! This is THE BEST news! Only a 3% blast! Next step: Chemo will be starting now and it’s going to be a hard hitter so that it can pass through the blood brain barrier & get inside the brain! Let’s begin praying that Katie can be as comfortable as possible during this process. It will be 3 days- 6 rounds! Chemo via spinal tap will occur twice a week until the leukemia is clear from Katie’s spinal fluid. She will then receive 14 days radiation and it’s back to transplant! We are SO thankful the doctors are on top of this, Katie is feeling confident and so grateful that the bone marrow is still in REMISSION!! Praise GOD for His goodness!!!!!!! Thank you all for your prayers from near & far, your encouraging posts, and your willingness to be part of this journey with Katie- in whatever way that may look like. It is so encouraging to see and FEEL and outpouring of love from even strangers supporting Katie’s fight and reminding her of God’s faithfulness! Keep those prayers coming for our @katiestrongtx 🧡🧡🧡 #katiestrongtx

UPDATE: The past few days, Katie had an awful headache & double vision. Doctors performed a CT scan, followed by an MRI & found a small spot in Katie’s brain. Leukemia has gone to the brain, but her doctor assures that there’s no need to panic. Katie was admitted to the hospital and Kandi arrived earlier today. Today doctors did a spinal tap to remove spinal fluid for testing to confirm if there is leukemia present. They also gave Katie a direct round of chemo via spinal tap to treat any leukemia that might be in the spinal fluid and outer covering in the brain. Results will come back tomorrow on the spinal tap. Tomorrow is also a bone marrow biopsy and those results will take 3 days. That’s when we will have a new treatment plan. Our prayers need to be hard & loud as we specifically pray that the bone marrow is clear of any leukemia and still in remission. Chemo will be done to target the new spots and radiation to assure all cells are gone. This will delay the bone marrow transplant 4+weeks. As we’ve all seen this far, Katie is an absolute rockstar and she knows God is bigger than this leukemia.  When her doctor got the news he told the ER doctor, “Katie is intelligent, tell her the truth. Don’t sugar coat it. She will call me as soon as you leave the room.” Katie is a believer, she is hopeful, she is strong and above all she knows her hope doesn’t come from this world- but from the Great Physician, wonderful Counselor, and an almighty God. He has carried her every step of the way. Let’s join in covering Katie, Jason, the girls and family in prayers for peace & an easy process in the coming days. At this time, just a reminder that unfortunately Katie is unable to accept any food or flowers. ❤️ Thank you all for your desire to love & serve sweet Katie! Let’s lift her up tonight together 🙏🏾 #katiestrongtx
