Cards for Kate

This is precious Kate...

In June of 2009, 5-year-old Kate was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer.  Dad (Aaron) is a pastor in Arizona and he and his wife, Holly, have two other children, Will and Olivia.  Of course this is devastating for the whole family and many are praying for them.  (Go to  to learn more about this family and their struggle). 

The family includes:

  • Kate, Age 6.
  • Sister - Olivia, age 8.
  • Brother - Will, age 5.
  • Mom - Holly.
  • Dad - Aaron.

Kate has a rough road ahead of her for quite awhile.  Kate's mom, Holly said:

"Oh my goodness, I can't believe all of the cards. It is crazy. The kids have loved them. And people have been so creative with them! Thank you!  When Liv and Will come to the Ronald McDonald House they sit on the bed and I give them their cards to go through. They love it. They then pick out their favorite. Thanks for including them in it. We still haven't gone through all of the cards! We slowly let Kate go through them... Again thank you for making the effort to do this. It has been great. Keep praying for sweet Kate. Many thanks, Holly"

We have been collecting cards for Kate for several months now.  We are continuing it as they seem to make her smile!

UPDATE: From Kate's Grandma: "I cannot tell you what a blessing it is for the McRae’s. The time and effort that has been put into blessing the McRae's is incredible. The Lord is truly blessing their family by the hands of many!! Thank you for ALL the effort that has been put into this project to reach the sick and hurting! An incredible ministry."
