Catrina was working as a community outreach advocate and respite care provider for individuals with disabilities when she was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkinâ€™s Lymphoma in July 2011. She had a stem cell transplant in November 2012 after receiving chemotherapy. Her continued treatment for chronic graph-versus-host disease (GVHD) requires her to travel to hospitals over 1.5 hours each way. As a single mom living in a rural community, who is unable to work, Catrina has incredible support but needs financial assistance for medication, housing and transportation.
