The last words that Edward “Bud” Ridenour heard his 13-year-old daughter, Katie, say were “Remember the difference I showed you.”
Ridenour is trying to make a difference by raising $1 million through his Web site, www.a
dollarforadad.com, for the Georgia Health Sciences Children’s Medical Center.
“I just want to keep a promise to my daughter,” Ridenour said.
Katie, who lived her whole life in Martinez, died Dec. 28, 2005, after a nearly life-long battle with cancer. At 18 months old, doctors diagnosed Katie with a brain tumor.
