Colin's Crusaders

Donate Join Team!


On March 10, 2018, we heard the words "Colin has cancer.' Our perfect three year old boy had a grapefruit sized Wilms tumor on his left kidney and it had spread to his lungs. Two years later… after multiple surgeries, countless rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, infections and all the other side effects and scars that come with it… he’s still our five year old funny, intelligent and strong boy. His hair is growing back and his energy and strength are better than ever!

Without all of the doctors, nurses, social workers and child life specialists in the Valerie Center at Goryeb Children’s Hospital, these past 2 years would have been a lot more difficult. The incredible support we’ve received from them throughout this journey has kept a smile on Colin’s face and given us hope.

Help us pay it forward to all the other families that hear the words “Your child has cancer.”
