We got Katie her own cell phone about 3 weeks ago. Stella Klein is trying to take Katie's cell phone away and stop all communication with her parents again. Only calls made from the foster home and monitored by CPS can be made to the family. This is so wrong. They have taken everything away from Katie and now they want to take away any communication with her family. If they do the High Dose Chemo Katie will be in hospital isolation ward for at least 4 weeks. Without that cell phone to call her friends and family she will not be able to survive. This is cruel and emotional abuse of Katie by CPS.
