In 2013, I founded the Gas4Katie Cancer Foundation to support my neighbor and friend, Katie Hawley, who was battling a rare form of bone cancer called Neuroblastoma. Katie’s parents had to drive her back and forth from Orange County to LA almost every day for her chemotherapy treatments. I wanted to do something to help so I thought to raise money in the form of gas cards to help ease some of the burden for their family. I have now expanded my foundation to help other kids in Orange County who are battling pediatric cancer, and we had two successful golf ball drops that raised massive amounts of money for the families! Unfortunately, now in 2017, Katie’s cancer has come back and the Hawley family is once again having to face these unimaginable struggles. Along with young Reese Imhoff who is battling relapsed Osteosarcoma, Katie will be one of the beneficiaries of the fundraiser this year. Here are the two kids’ stories:
On behalf of Katie and Reese, I want to thank you very much for your support! With your help, we can make a difference here in Orange County in the lives of these families who unfortunately are faced with this terrible disease!
