On her first birthday, Catie Wilkins was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, an aggressive brain tumor. With no warning, Catie and her family were plunged into a world of non-stop doctors and surgeries and chemotherapy and medicines.

Catie’s parents, Tré and Jenny, helped her navigate through 12 surgeries, 4 different chemotherapy protocols and 6 weeks of radiation. But her tumor continued to grow, even through these harsh treatments. Catie fearlessly fought her battle with cancer, but the chemotherapy had compromised her immune system so severely that she succumbed to a common virus before she reached her 5th birthday.
