“Pray, Fight, Win.” That is the motto that has pulled Catherine Maultsby and her family through the last six months. Catherine, or Cat, as she is known by friends and family, is a Madison girl that has taken over the hearts of so many through her powerful story.
Now it is time for the community to give back a little of the hope and strength that Cat has shown. On Saturday, Sept. 24, there will be a blood drive called, “Cat’s Blood Drive.” It will take place from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Winn-Dixie parking lot.
Catherine, daughter of J.P. and Julie Maultsby, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her left lower leg on March 10. Her leg was amputated on June 2, and she now refers to it as “Peggy.” On Aug. 11 Cat got her “bionic leg,” or “bobonica,” as Cat affectionately refers to it. This gave her the ability to walk for the first time in five months. Cat and her parents and family have relied heavily on the prayers of this community to help her pull through her battle. Now is the community’s chance to make a difference in other people’s lives as well.
All blood types are welcome and everyone is asked to come help out. Not only will you be helping out Cat, who gets “credits” for each donation, but you will also be helping someone in need of blood.
To make an appointment to be a part of “Cat’s Blood Drive,” call Summer Jones at (850)673-9719.
