Dear NNPDF Families and Friends,
It is with a heavy heart that we notify our NPD family membership of the passing of Kaitlyn Bexton (January 24, 2001 – December 8, 2015 ~ NPC), who courageously fought the NPC battle for 14 years. Kaitlyn loved watching “Dancing with the Stars”, listening to music and spending time with her family. Katie had an infectious smile and filled a room with her spirited, happy and playful energy.
Kaitlyn’s family takes comfort in the fact that she is now playing with her sister Ally (Alexandra), who also suffered from Niemann-Pick Disease Type C and passed away in 2009 at the age of 10.
To Kaitlyn’s loving parents, Stasha and Michael, and beloved younger sister, Samantha, please know that your NNPDF family is here for you and to let us know if you need anything in the coming days, weeks and months ahead. We are holding you all in our hearts and thoughts.
A link to Kaitlyn’s obituary will be posted as soon as it is available on the NNPDF website: http://www.nnpdf.org/Newsline2015.html#Bexton
