You people are carrying on like a bunch of idiots. Do any of you know what it is like to have a gravely ill child? I do. And even with insurance, it is horribly expensive, and to have it go on for two years! None of you knows what will be done with the money which was donated for Katelyn and it is none of our business. To those of you who are bitching about how unfairly the little Rose boy was treated, did you go visit him? Did you donate to help him? Did you offer to take him in and help him after DCS removed him from his home? Most of us never even knew who he was or about his plight. And for everyone who is carrying on about Katelyn getting a disability check and Medicaid, I am sure that the little Rose boy did also. And most of Erica's rants on facebook about scammers were directed at Katelyn's biological father, not at the Roses. I pray that none of you ever find yourselves in circumstances with a gravely ill child like Erica found herself. It can bankrupt a family both financially and emotionally. I think that if I ever lost one of my children or grandchildren, I would truly lose my mind. I feel for both these families.

Regardless of how everyone feels about Erica, Katestock is a celebration of Kate's battle and her strength.
You do not have to donate a dime. But you can give blood because the MEDIC bus will be there.
If you can think of it in terms of the memory of the 2 deceased children, it puts things in a whole new perspective.
The kids are what matters. Let Erica do what she do, it ain't going to matter because at the end of the day she is the one who lost a child and no amount of money would make her happy because who would honestly trade a child in for money?(meaning what mother who actually loved her child.) People can help other people with cancer anyway no matter what she does or doesn't do.
I think everyone has finally voiced their opinion and gotten it off their chests and lets resume the awareness for ALL kids in the county suffering.
Your so wrong about your statement, I understand what your trying to say is honor the children and if thats what Katestock was all about and the money was not going directly to Katelyns mother as the posters clearly all say then I doubt people would do anything but support it. This woman has a lot of money that was meant for her childs dream and she is making her own bucket list with it and did not help another sick child when asked. There is no honor is where the money is going and most likely the sale of livelike kate logos and bumper stickers to further pad the families pockets. Your statement means well and if only the family meant well then I could support what your trying to say.

There are two sides to every story and people are only hearing one side and it is based on half-truths and lies. You all act like Erica was the one sponsoring the various fundraisers, including Katestock. The reality is that she has nothing to do with them. They were all started by people who wanted to do something to help. She hasn't asked anyone for money and we don't know what will be done with it. Until then, let's just remember that there are two grieving families.

Well its started just as I thought it would. Patches being sold for 10 dollars each listed on Katelyn's mothers facebook page. I was afraid this was going to happen..Rest in Peace Sweet Children and may God give a conscience to those wishing to profit from a childs passing.

If you know anything about Facebook, then you know that Erica did not post that on her page. A guy who has supported Katelyn and her family almost from the beginning of her illness did. And if this individual wishes to have these patches made and sell them to raise money for the Katelyn Norman Foundation, then I think that is his right to do so.

Golly everyone was tickled pink when it was a big thing that put good ol cc in the spot light for something other that meth or drugs. Now looks like the ol green eyed monster has came alive.. People in this shit hole are green with jealously!
If you took the time to know Erica you would know she would give anything to have her child back!! Damn you people need to find the truth before you open your trashy mouths! Go ask her what ever is on your pea sized brain. No one has even gave her time to grieve before they started throwing stones at her.. Complete morons!!!

Complete idiots, If you bothered to read before insulting people you would understand everyone has sympathy for Katelyn and her family. The problem is lots of people poured money into her daughters dreams and she did not get to enjoy them. Her mother then turns away another mother of a sick child asking for help. Then continues to want to put on a show that benefits her family instead of other children in need in this county. Morons are those that open their mouths with learning what they are commenting on and I think you just defined that word. This community loved that family dearly, now we hope she is going to show the love back by using the money that was meant for her daughter for the good of the community instead of blowing it all on her dreams, thats not what people wanted to happen that helped, they wanted the wonderful young lady Katelyn to enjoy her last days on earth. Since that did not happen and her mother has those funds we are hoping that the message is coming through loud and clear that the money was for her daughter and not her, so she should do the right thing and help others in need in the community.

say what wrote:
He had DMD? DMD = Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
DMD is THE most common lethal genetic disease of childhood. I did not know the boy. However, a child with DMD can be visually seen as having 'something' that is debilitating as DMD is the worst form of muscular dystrophy ever.
On top of DMD, he developed cancer??? Am I reading that right?... and, all he wanted was a touch screen phone, and somebody to take away his fear and assure him that he was at least worthy a HUMAN BEING to receive a simple generic burial.
And, his mother, in desperation for her son, appealed to Erica - another mother that would be common sense and SHOULD have felt safe in assuming WOULD relate, and help because she's all over the news saying she would ..... OMG.... and, was slammed and humiliated by Erica, for asking...
Jesus!!
it was his stepmother that got slammed and she did nothing wrong but repeat to ppl what she had been told by the ones putting together that fundraiser and wanted to give the proceeds to Wesley and his family in Kate's name and appearantly Erica did not know anything bout it and blasted the stepmom on FB that's what I heard

All pissed off you didn't find whatever info u came on here to nosey in about so come on this thread to blow off ur bs about it. lol

Nobody is jealous, and what God died and left you in charge to run a nasty mouth thinking you can tell anybody else they need to get to church??LOL you came on here to look for info about a wreck and didn't find it then start a thread about it. You know you want to nosey into anything about it to start trash about whoever might would have been in it "TRASH", and nobody on here said anything about bringing Katelyn back. Now get on your knees and get urself to church and mind and worry about your own business and ask for forgiveness for coming on here to start shit about whoever got into a wreck acting like u all worried about it when u know ur just worried about missing any trash/drama you can start about it "trash" now go on git!!

If by KB you mean Kem? I know she has been nothing but supportive of Erica and yet as per usual Erica jumped to conclusions by what half azz lies and out of context people took things.

You all are dead on to defend Erica like shes a queen. Its never been about her!!! Cant you all grasp that?? Kate was her own person! We love and want to remember Kate as the loving generous fighter who wanted everyone to co.e together. But her stagemom is ripping her memory to shreads with the way she has behaved. Why is that so hard for you buddies of hers to understand thats how the general publuc feels???
huh

Fact is if she truly wanted to give back in memory of both of the kids this fundraiser would be on behalf on het daughter and proceeds even just a portion be given to childrens hosp or st judes! But she will put it in her pocket therefore I will not buy one thing!

Really, damn how long ago was it that she buried her daughter a couple week?? Three? Give her time grieve!! If you would pay attention you would know they unveiled the foundation several days ago. Did you donate any money? If so how much? Do you have proof? If so we will get together and go ask for it back. And please shut tfu about her not helping another child!!! You have no idea what you're talking about. Get your facts together before you come on here. Remember karma? Well, she's a bitch! And I think she will be visiting you!!!!!
