Family Fundraisers

Mason

$11,357

Mason loves sports (especially baseball), Fortnite, and a good slice of pizza, but his love for his family is what inspires us most. Mason bravely fought Stage 4 Neuroblastoma and beat it. Admits the COVID 19 pandemic, Mason had routine scans where he relapsed. It was urgent to get him to New York City for treatment. We were able to assist Mason and his dad and help them get to NYC and not worry about bills for the next few months. We raised money via Facebook and also held a T-shirt fundraiser where T-shirts read “Mason’s Miracle.”

JW

$8,010

JW is the cutest little man I got the honor to visit a couple of times during their visits to NYC. Though he was so young, he was the bravest guy. He was always smiling and playing with his little brother. Even on his way to the hospital, he always had time to open a present and give hugs and high fives. JW ultimately passed away in 2020. His family needed assistance with funeral expenses, so we were able to help them with this.

Reece

$1,750

Though I never got the pleasure to meet Reece in person, I have followed along closely with his battle via Facebook. He has the cutest little smile, and it is so easy to fall in love with him even miles away. Mom heard about Whip Pediatric Cancer and asked if we could help her; she wanted to take Reece on a cancer-free vacation; she was struggling financially. We knew we wanted to help in any way we could.

Sarina

$1,118

Sarina’s story is one that hits very close to home for me. She lives in the town over, and she is 21 years old, just like me. We met during her first fight with Acute Myeloid Leukemia when we were seniors in High School. Now, as seniors in college, we talked about breakups and new clothes until she received the dreaded news that she relapsed and has to fight this beast once again. I wanted her to be able to do something that fueled her soul.

Finn

$6,870

Finn is a family friend of our beloved Hunter Rose. She does not have cancer but has been treated on the pediatric oncology floor at Seattle Children’s Hospital for her immensely rare conditions. She even received chemotherapy as part of her treatment. Because of the rarity of her illness, there are no foundations that are aimed to help her. Hunter’s mom reached out and asked if there was anything we could do as the family struggled. Our hearts broke, and we knew we had to help!
