Katie Collier is a senior this year at Seattle Christian Schools and is enduring more than most kids during their final year of high school. While most kids are filling out college applications and just trying to make it to the end of the year, Katie is battling a rare form of leukemia, acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). The outlook is good for Katie but her and her family can still use your prayers.
This last Thursday was an exciting day for Katie in the midst of weeks of treatment for her leukemia. Katie signed her letter of intent to play college basketball for the University of Washington Huskies. The #21 prospect in the country in the 2012 class by ESPN HoopGurlz celebrated with friends and family at Seattle Christian Schools where she attends.
I've been lucky enough to watch Katie play basketball over the last couple years and she is a baller! At 6' 3" she has an amazing presence on the court with amazing ball handling! The UW is fortunate to have you! Congratulations Katie on your decision to attend the University of Washington! We will continue to pray for you in this journey!
