Katlyn Update!

Many of you know of Katlyn either from her Dad’s email mentioned by Charlie at the golf outing, or you met her at the St. Jude’s Dinner in Rochester.

Katlyn had a heart check a while back and was found to need a new heart. Last Monday night and into Tuesday (her 15th birthday!), she got that new heart! It was a very long night with 12 hours in surgery, but she has come out fighting and is amazing everyone with how well she’s doing! You can follow her progress on her Facebook page by clicking below:

St. Jude Evening of Hope Honoring Charlie Sanders a Great Success!

What a great night it was last evening at the Royal Park Hotel in beautiful downtown Rochester, Michigan.

The St. Jude ALSAC Children’s Research Hospital honored Charlie as a Legend for Charity surrounded by many family members, colleagues, friends and supporters.

After an inspiring presentation by Sarah Ford of St. Jude, a former St Jude patient, Charlie was introduced by long-time friend Mary Lee Kowalczyk of Rochester Community House and accepted his award for all the work he has done with the Charlie Sanders Foundation and Have A Heart Save A Life.

There was also a live auction of amazing items like seats in Charlie’s suite at a Lions game, tickets to Tigers games including the World Series, and a fantastic Detroit Pistons package.

Photos to follow soon but we just wanted you to know what a great night it was!
