This God loving, awe inspiring family has survived many years despite extraodinary financial and medical challenges. A hardship tough enough to break the strongest of families, but not the Groebner's! They are a kind, loving, selfless family bound in faith and love and they will get through this too, thanks to the generous donations and support from people like you who have followed their amazing journey.

The Groebner family sold their home in Minnesota and drove out to California to be close to Stanford in hopes that they might be able to maintain 5 year old Katie Grace, longer then the 1 year survival time doctors gave her in MN. Stanford had a new IV medication to help their daughter maintain until she could get the transplant she needed. CCC and Donna Meisner got them started on raising the Fund money they needed for the transplant. The Groebners are a truly remarkable family with an equally remarkable story. It's inspiring to see how a family going through so many challenges can be filled with so much hope and love and still have enough in their hearts to share with others...

"I am Katie Grace. I am 11 and I have Pulmonary Hypertension, a rare and terminal illness. But I have Faith that God will see me through. Thank you for being here to visit me" ;)

Kathy Groebner says that Katie Grace made this collage in April. "She is still a fighter. You can do this baby girl you have God and 1,000's of Prayer warriors don't lose hope."

Thank you for all the thousands of prayers across the country and around the world. They give the family the strength and support to help keep Katie Grace fighting. Please continue praying for her as the medical team works hard to help her become strong enough for a new lung transplant.

If you are able to help donate to the family it would help ease their financial burdens as they spend their time caring for Katie Grace. Blessings to all. T~

Good News! Katie Grace has shown some improvement in the last 24 hours. Her lungs sound more clear and so far she is maintaining. One of Katie Grace's doctors was shocked at the improvement overnight and told Kathy that it's the prayers because it's not from the treatment. The doctors didn't believe Katie Grace would pull through this. THIS is the power of prayer and a time to Praise God. Katie Grace is still fighting however, so PLEASE keep the prayers going and continue to share. Thank you for all the love and support shown to Katie Grace and her family. Your prayers strengthen all of them!
Amazing Katie Grace

I want to thank my beautiful friend Tina for being there and knowing our needs even though she battles with Lymes Disease and all the issues caused from it. Without these funds I don't know how our family would get through and I know she is an Angel. Thank to all who have helped and thank you for your encouragement and prayers and thank you Tina for keeping this page going.
