Last September, Catherine was diagnosed with cancer. The twelve year old needed a little Magic in her life.


Catherine's mother Audrey shared, "Today has been a long time coming. We as a family needed a happy moment, and we finally got it! Catherine has been fighting cancer for over 9 months and needed this more than anyone can imagine. The party was everything that we could have wished for it to be; a group of family and close friends gathered together to celebrate Catherine's life and to celebrate her MAW gift, Magic her new show horse. Thank you to everyone who helped make Catherine's wish possible! You've put a smile on my daughter’s face that is worth more to me than you will ever know."
