She has a rare form of Leukemia called APL, Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia, which has a 90 - 100% cure rate. She will be at Mass General getting treatment for the next 4-6 weeks. After that, she will continue to be treated as an out-patient. Katie is being extremely positive and optimistic and is ready to fight this thing with everything she’s got. She could use all the prayers and positive energy sent her way, so every bit helps.
