You can make a difference in the lives of kids like Karen!
Life took an abrupt turn when Karen, age 10, and her family received her diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Far from her Yup'ik Eskimo home in Russian Mission, Karen stayed at Providence Hickel House, a hospitality home in Anchorage funded in part by CMN Hospitals. She needed frequent blood and platelet transfusions and oral chemotherapy. Relatives sent subsistence foods like salmon and moose for Karen to eat when treatment made other foods taste bad. CMN Hospitals helped fund educators to keep Karen and her sisters caught up in school throughout the year.
Finally, around Thanksgiving 2012, Karen was in remission. She returned to her small village, where she was able to get back to her favorite pastime - catching caterpillars. She also enjoys fishing, being around animals, and snowmachining.
