Arden Quinn Bucher’s intelligence, empathy, and dynamic personality charmed everyone. Prior to her Neuroblastoma diagnosis on October 11, 2007 at age 2, she happily played with boundless energy. She bravely managed to keep smiling and learning throughout her difficult months of treatment. Arden’s memorial fund supports St. Baldrick’s mission: funding the most promising research, wherever it takes place to provide kids fighting cancers less toxic, more effective treatments allowing them to live longer, healthier lives.

HERE WE GO, ARDEN NATION!!!

You have always answered the call, and we have always appreciated your tremendous support. This fund is an opportunity for you to bloom like those beautiful sunflowers do each year that remind us of the love and hope that surrounded Arden in her battle!!

Anyone who wishes to donate directly to the Arden Quinn Bucher Memorial Fund, or to hold an event or fundraiser to support it is welcome to do so. Feel free to contact Kelly Forebaugh at St. Baldrick’s (kelly@stbaldricks.org) who can help guide you, and also us, Amy and Rick Bucher at rabucher@gmail.com, so we can send our gratitude your way and try to attend if we can!

Meanwhile, we will update this page with any news or upcoming events, which is another reason to keep us in the loop with your efforts. We’d love to acknowledge you here as well.

As Arden’s siblings grow and mature, they find so much comfort in the good we are doing in their sister’s honor. We can’t count how often they talk about her or express their sadness that they can’t play with her or never had the opportunity to get to know her. Thanks for helping our children see the “helpers” in the aftermath of such unthinkable loss for our family and process the pain with the joy that comes from giving back and potentially changing the world for other children.

Thank you again and again, for all you do in our Sweetpea’s memory. Much love and God bless.
