Hope, Strength, and Healing for families coping with a child cancer diagnosis

Meet Keaton’s Kiddo ~ Natassia

Meet Keaton’s Kiddo, Natassia. Natassia is a rock star of a 10-year-old who enjoys drawing and painting. In May of 2021, Natassia was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a form of cancer that grows in bone or soft tissue connected to the bone.

Despite her diagnosis, Natassia continues being a rockstar throughout her treatments. While adjusting to changes that take place with a childhood cancer diagnosis, Natassia’s family has been a strong support system for her. Her mom shared that Natassia’s younger brother is so sweet and always wants to help his big sister when she’s not feeling well.

Since being referred to Keaton’s, our Family Navigator Team has provided Natassia’s family with a financial grant to support with travel to their treatments. We have also had the opportunity to provide joy-filled experiences and created a Hope Chest for her and her younger brother. As well as bring joy to the family through our Adopt-A-Family program where Natassia and her brother received gifts for Christmas through one of our sponsors.

“Thank you for the support you have shown our family” ~ Natassia’s Mom
