Brooke’s Leap
Brooke Katrola is a 22 year old college student and graduate of Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. The summer of 2017, she was diagnosed with a grade 2 astrocytma (brain tumor). As a student and Pom Squad member at Texas Tech University, Brooke moved home to Houston to receive treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Even after an 11 hour awake craniotomy, 6 weeks of proton radiation, egg retrieval, and a year of chemo, she never stopped working to finish her degree. Brooke also teaches dance at a local studio and is an ambassador with Dancers Against Cancer. Thanks to the generosity of donors at Live N Leap, Brooke and her friend Emily (osteosarcoma survivor) were able to go on a dream Disney Cruise in May 2019 together! She is so thankful for the support that Live N Leap has provided to her and her family.
