A fundraiser for Katie Birch, a Decatur woman battling breast cancer, will be held at the Bellmont Braves’ home basketball game Saturday. “Team Katie” bracelets will be sold for $2 starting at 6:15 p.m. at the school. All proceeds will go directly to the Birch family.
Birch, a young mother of three, was diagnosed in 2012 with breast cancer. She finished radiation and chemotherapy in August 2013 and found that her breast cancer had metastasized to her brain and lung in October 2013 just two months after finishing treatment. She is currently undergoing chemo and radiation for the spots on her lungs.
