Giving Back

Giving back to our Alaskan Community

Katie’s Handprint is a beautiful foundation named in memory of the Founder’s daughter, who unfortunately lost her 3 year bone cancer battle, in January of 2015. During Katie’s cancer treatment, her family experienced the unfortunate financial burden cancer treatment can cause. This is where they learned of organizations that are able to provide assistance to families, and decided to bring a foundation as such to Alaska to help our local families with children in treatment for pediatric cancer. Their goal is to help ease some of the financial burden, if even just a little.

Katie’s handprint has helped a number of families, such as 5 year old Ezra’s family. Ezra is from Eagle River and was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma cancer just a few months after his 4th birthday. Being the youngest in a family of five, even if he is only one minute younger than his twin brother, he is the family’s little warrior. Within 24 hours of Ezra’s diagnosis, he was transported by medevac to Seattle, where he has continued to receive treatment since November 2020. For his parents, this has created a dramatic change in regards to running two households in Alaska and Seattle, bearing in mind his Father and brothers are still in Alaska. His Mother, as his primary caregiver in Seattle, and his Father traveling back and forth between Alaska and Seattle, to maintain stability for his family and career. Thankfully through organizations and Katie’s Handprint, being a grantee helps take some stress off of an already stressful situation.

"This is one of my favorite shops to go to, I can always trust them to take care of my vehicle. I had my clutch give out and was able to drop my vehicle off after shop hours, and the clutch was replaced within days. Offers good prices on oil changes as well."
