The Blast 2022

Miles for Kate

We're so thankful for Cook Children's and everything they have provided Kate. We'd love your support to help continue this fight and #blastawaycancer!

At 6 months old, Kate was diagnosed with Wilm's Tumor(nephroblastoma), a kidney cancer that impacts about 500 young children per year. It grows quickly and was already taking up half of her abandon. Within 48 hours, Cook Children's biopsied it, installed a port, and started chemotherapy to shrink it. After many days in the hospital and outpatient visits, multiple types of chemotherapy, radiation, and the removal of the tumor and her kidney, Kate was cancer free!
Each dollar raised with The Blast supports lifesaving research, treatments and programs for Cook Children’s Hematology and Oncology patients who are battling cancer.

Please join us for the walk on April 2, 2022. Our goal this year is to raise at least $3,000 - since Kate is 3 years cancer free as of February 2022!
Kerry & Dave (Kate, Lillian, & Morgan too!)
