A foundation set up in the memory of a Campbell County girl who lost her life to cancer has received money it's been waiting to get for more than a year.

Katelyn Norman died almost one year ago after a battle with bone cancer. She had put together a bucket list shortly before she died, and her friends in the community helped support it with money.

But, when she passed away, those donations were not transferred from the Y-12 Federal Credit Union to a cancer foundation set up Norman's name.

Monday Y-12 announced it is transferring the money to charity.

"People don't want to see their money wasted, or owned by the state or owned by someone they didn't donate it to. So I think that seeing the money, it may not be going to get her to Italy now, but it's going to help fulfill her dream of helping other people," said Brandon Huckaby with the Katelyn Norman Childhood Foundation.

Officials say the foundation had to work through several steps before they could legally transfer the money. They would not say how large the donation was.
