Summit High School senior Catherine Cordrey, as part of a school project, welcomed Kortney Rose Foundation Founder Kristen Gillette to Summit High School, where Gillette addressed students in their gym classes.

Gillette spoke of The Kortney Rose Foundation, which began when Gillette made the decision to channel her grief into something positive after her 9 year-old daughter Kortney, who suffered from an inoperable brain tumor, tragically lost her life in 2006.

Gillette also talked about brain tumor awareness, the lack of government research funding for pediatric cancers, and the how important the support from foundations like Kortney's is to research efforts geared toward treatment and a cure of the disease.
