Catie Summers was just 16 years old when she passed away in December 2007 after a 4 year battle with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer). She was treated at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. I never got the privilege to meet Catie, but her life still changed mine. I heard about Catie right after she passed away and then heard that she lived here Clarksville... so of course, I googled her name. Google took me to Michael Bayne's blog and this post about Catie. I started following Michael's blog and eventually we decided to check out Grace Community Church where he is the family ministries pastor. Almost a year later we are still there and have been so blessed by the church, the way they reach out to the community, serve its members and help us strive to live every day for our Lord. I am very thankful for Catie's life.
On January 29th, Relevant Students (the youth group at GCC) is hosting a concert in Catie's memory. A concert to fight cancer. All proceeds from this concert will go back to The Lance Armstrong Foundation for cancer research. We CAN beat cancer... $1 at a time.
The concert will include the remix band from GCC, The Daniel Doss Band, Jason Roy from Building 429 among others. You won't want to miss this fabulous night in Clarksville! Come. Enjoy. Donate. Do your part to help END childhood cancer once and for all.
