A TOUCHING STORY TOLD BY Marie Grass Amenta.
Cassie* had an especially awful form of pediatric liver cancer, loved to sing and Cassie’s Mom thought it would be good to give her a chance to sing with other children. Kristie was a bit skeptical but checked with her supervisor and decided to give her a try.

But her spirit and her sweet voice made everyone fall in love with her immediately!
