HARD ON KATIE

I have read so much, for so long, about the dilemma that a brave, seriously ill young girl has had to face. Her name is Katie Wernecke.

I do not understand how Child Protective Services thinks that they are "protecting" this child. They have just jerked her out of the most stable and loving environment she has ever had--her home and her family.

The courts and her doctors are separating Katie from the care, support and security of her parents, and continue to force her to take treatments for Hodgkin's disease. I do not think that's their business, but if that is what they dictate, they darn sure better be right and get her cured.

The ordeal they have put Katie through is enough to make a healthy person sick.

I am not as worried about Katie dying of cancer as I am about her dying of a broken heart, and possibly taking her parents with her. My utmost love and compassion go out to her and her family.
