Katie Bunker

16-year old Melanoma Survivor

Katie Bunker, a high school student, was diagnosed in middle school with melanoma that had spread to her lymph nodes. She was in seventh grade when she noticed a bug bite that didn't go away. What looked like a bite turned out to be stage-III melanoma, a disease she had never heard of. Katie is now the junior class president at Cedarcrest High School, and also participates in school activities ranging from track to dance. You can view Katie’s Powerful Patient video here.
