Raise Awareness For Cancer In Redding California

If you’ve checked out the Shasta Ortho blog lately, you know that we’ve been featuring an outstanding young lady from Redding, Katelyn Peterson, who has been doing some awesome things to raise awareness for cancer.

Katelyn’s journey started when she shaved her head to show support for a family friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer. It has now grown into a passionate mission as Katelyn has since started an organization called Kids4Healing, and she is now actively spreading the word. If you missed our previous posts on Katelyn, you can check them out here:

Redding California Cancer Support

Shock, fear, anxiety, grief, anger, depression, disbelief. Those are all common feelings upon receiving a cancer diagnosis about oneself or loved one.

13-year old Katelyn Peterson experienced some similar feelings when she first heard that her close family friend, Lisa, was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was important to Katelyn to let her friend know that she would do anything to support her while she went through treatment. That’s when Katelyn decided to shave her head so that every time Lisa saw Katelyn, she would remember that she is loved and supported.

Shoulder Surgery In Redding

Crossfit is a core strength and conditioning program that has been growing in popularity throughout most of the world. Richard Henson, a 62 year old husband, father and grandfather in Redding joined a local Crossfit group in 2012 to get back into shape. After losing some weight and learning how to do all the exercises properly he was approached by a Crossfit coach who encouraged him to join the 2013 Reebok Crossfit Open, a worldwide competition where challengers all perform the same five exercises and submit their scores online in real time. Says Henson “I was surprised because here I am, a guy over 60 who is just trying to get into shape and I’m being asked to compete against other men in my age group from all over the world.”
