Three ways to support your daughter in the hospital

Two months ago, my daughter Katie Gregory was diagnosed with Stage 3 pulmonary fibrosis.

The diagnosis has since progressed and Katie has been through two surgeries and four rounds of chemo.

The chemo treatments have been extremely difficult, but have been a life changing experience for Katie and her family.

Katie has spent a great deal of time with her physiotherapists, and her doctor has been extremely supportive.

Katie’s recovery is still far from complete, but she is making a full recovery.

Katie is a talented child, who loves music, photography and learning.

She is a fantastic student and has a great future ahead of her.

We have set up a donation fund to help her make her dreams come true and help her to get her life back on track.

Katie loves her job, but this job is also her calling and she has been lucky to have a very supportive boss.

Thank you Katie for everything you do.
