On a Friday night Brooke is: Most likely at the movie theater with my family or friends, it's one of my favorite things to do in my free time!

Who inspires Brooke to #BeAGoodCookie: A friend of mine named Katie. I met Katie through mutual friends when I was in high school in my home state of Arizona. In October of 2011, at the age of 15, perfectly-normal and seemingly-healthy Katie was diagnosed with a stage 4 cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma, which only impacts about five in one million kids. She went through over a year of treatment and inspired tens of thousands of people all over the world with her and her family's steady faith and trust in God. In February of 2013, her scans came back completely clear of the cancer that had been all throughout her body, but a few months later, it returned. Katie passed away at the age of 17 on September 17, 2013. I will always remember how she trusted that God's plan for her life was perfect the way He wrote it and to take things "One Day At A Time."
