Kathryn's Journey

As many of you have seen, our friends and family have been asking for prayers, energy and a miracle.

On Tuesday 12/22/2020 Kathryn went to Dartmouth to meet with a specialist about some concerns her family and doctor had been observing, that quick appointment and MRI ended up somewhere none of us ever imagined. They discovered a tumor.

Kathryn has been diagnosed with cancer.

Wednesday her oncology team placed a shunt in her brain to help release some pressure with hopes that this will set her up for success when she heads to her next appointment . Funds donated will help them get to these appointments, stay near the hospital and keep life as normal as possible for Kathryn. 

We are hopeful that they will be able to help our girl. We have a rough road ahead of us, but together we can do anything. We want to thank everyone for their ongoing support and prayers as we navigate this prognosis.

Until we can gather more details, Kathryn is unaware of her prognosis and we ask everyone to respect that.

Starting 12/28/20 we will have more plans of trips to Boston and Dartmouth to meet with her specialist and Oncology team. 

Thank you everyone for any donations to the Murphy -Waters family, Dawn, Lenny and Kathryn all appreciate it greatly. 

 We will keep you updated on the progress of her Journey!
