The Little Girl with the Big Heart


My Name is Abraham my little sister name was Katie Burke in 1997 she died at the age of 19. I had just gotten to know my sister; from the age of nine we grow up in separate home. At 16, I met her for the first time amid family trouble… I moved in with my aunt and uncle who were caring for my sister, and we became best of friends. At around 13 years of age she was reported to have been born with a tumor no one was aware of and I watched my sister go from fun loving to wheelchair bound and I felt helpless there was nothing I could do. I would love to help someone else in my sister name to prevent or find a cure. will have a picture of her later
