We would like to say a massive thank you to a very inspirational young lady who has recently raised £250 for The Dream Factory. Katie did 70km of exercise a week during lockdown in the form of running, walking and even cycling which is a fantastic achievement especially as Katie was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia in 2016 aged only 12.
Katie underwent high Intensive Chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant but after a few months, Katie became very ill again and was diagnosed with Acute Renal Failure called Thrombotic Microangiopathy, a very rare condition that sometimes occurs after a Bone Marrow transplant.
Sadly, Katie was put into an induced coma so her body could rest while they put her on dialysis. Thankfully, Katie recovered and is now trying to regain a normal teenage life. Her dream is to have a millionaire lifestyle for the day and The Dream Factory hope to grant this for Katie very soon!
Its young adults like Katie who really are inspirations to all of us especially hero in these difficult times. Thank you Katie!
