Hope and Empowerment Event

Michelle Tucker of The Henry Tucker Foundation ( and
is planning a Hope and Empowerment Event on the 20th of March at the Jewish Community Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.

This event will bring together families living with childhood cancer and medical professionals from St. Vincent and Riley hospitals. Important topics relating to childhood cancer will be presented and discussed, and a variety of speakers will be there. I am going to be one of them.

On Sunday, the 21st, we are going to be treated to a screening of the soon-to-be-released movie, "Letters to God," and Patrick Doughtie (who wrote & co-directed the movie in memory of his son, Tyler) will be there with us for this exciting event. Patrick will be the keynote speaker at the conference.
Save the date - more information is forthcoming!

And please, if you are a praying person, pray for me, that I will be led to speak what God wants me to say, and to do it in a way that honors Him. The idea is to raise support and awareness for the cancer community, and to encourage HOPE.

I will pray for you. You will be wonderful and inspiring and humble. Your words will move many. Much love to you, Karen.

I pray for you all the time. God is with you all the time.

God will speak through you dear Karen because he already does.

When others will hear what you have to say and with such grace they will believe in God all over again.

I adore you.

Karen, you will do wonderful, I just know it.
I am so proud of you going in this direction even further...sharing Katie's story. You are such an inspiration.
I will pray for you though..just to give you some more confidence.

Karen said...

This is wonderful and a very big deal. I think our world would rather not look at such things, so it is a miracle that the movie and the event are coming together at all. I have no doubt that you will be the most inspiring person there, because of how you have ministered to me over and over again. I will pray for you, and look forward to seeing how God uses you.
