Beckett died Friday morning in the same hospital where she’d once made
history. Beckett was 3 years old when her case changed health care law.
She was 34 when she died. NPR’s Joseph Shapiro explains why she was
important to other children with
disabilities. All of us are devastated but will continue to be inspired
by her courage and the tremendous impact she had on behalf of all
children and youth with special healthcare needs and their families. A
beautiful tribute to Katie, aired on National Public Radio last week is
available following this link.
