Hope and Healing for Katie

$4,723 of $10,000 goal

On December 19th 2017, Katie Foster, a bright and energetic seventh grader at Kiser Middle School, suffered a spontaneous brain bleed and was rushed into surgery. A few days later, Katie underwent a second brain surgery to remove a blood clot caused by the bleed, and shortly after suffered a stroke.
Katie's outgoing and loving personality are evident even in the early weeks of her recovery. She is quick to smile and give visitors a thumbs up! Katie will be discharged from Wiston Salem Hospital rehab center on Wednesday January 24th, and return home to her grandparents. While Katie's strength and determination shine through, she and her family have a long, uphill road to recovery. Katie will come home needing a handicap accessible home (entrance ramps, bathroom modifications, accommodations for a wheel chair as she hasn't gained full use of her right side). She will need extensive physical and cognitive therapy to help her relearn daily tasks of living, and gain skills that will get her ready to eventually return to Kiser Middle School.

The Kiser Middle School community and the Our Lady of Grace School and Parish continue to be an extraordinary emotional support for Katie and her family. The family is deeply grateful for all of the care, prayers, and heart-felt outreach by the community. The costs of Katie's recovery are largely unknown and any donation you would like to give would be a huge help and greatly appreciated by the family.
