"During the most difficult moments Friends of Karen has been there for me.  For a mother who only wanted to hear the words "you can dream", today I am dreaming of my daughter making it to her Sweet 16...Thank you for everything, helping my children not to go hungry and sending them gifts has eased my burden.  Thank you, Friends of Karen, for these 6½ years at my side so that I would not be alone."
Kati's mother
