Natalie and her sister, Anna

Inspired by Natalie and the many young courageous children who undergo intense treatment, Natalie’s family and friends created the Friends for Life Guild to benefit Children’s Hospital Childhood Cancer Research.  Together, we will help find a cure and make a difference in the lives of young people battling cancer. 


When Natalie was in the first grade, her favorite color was Apple Green.  She selected this fun color for our first Friends for Life Ornament.  The designers took the color and created a lovely green swirled ornament.



Natalie has returned to normal life and is very involved in school, sports, and drama! She is doing well in school, which is truly wonderful, since she missed so much while undergoing treatment. Like all children battling childhood cancer, she has amazing strength. She maintains a great attitude as she wrestles with the reality of childhood cancer, and the ongoing side-effects.



Natalie plans to become a doctor and help find a cure for cancer. Whatever she does when she grows up, she will do it with amazing dedication.
