For Eva Jane and All the Others


Get Involved Donate
In the summer of 2014, when she should have been preparing to head off to kindergarten with her peers, Eva was diagnosed with a brain tumor. In addition to the obvious shock, we were stunned by the lack of research into treatment options for Eva’s tumor type. This fund was created to help further understanding of pediatric brain tumors, and to honor the bravery of our sweet and spirited girl.

In June 2014, the week after graduating preschool, Eva was on vacation at her grandparents’ house.

As usual, we were all struggling to keep up with Eva – she was busy jumping off the diving board, going on roller coasters, racing on her bike, and chasing after her big brother. We were only mildly concerned when she started complaining of headaches – chalking it up to fatigue and too much sun. A week later, Eva was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent a 7-hour craniotomy.

We learned shortly thereafter that Eva’s official diagnosis was PNET, a rare and high-grade pediatric brain tumor with relatively poor outcomes and not a lot of data regarding treatment options.

Instead of heading off to kindergarten that fall, Eva spent the next year commuting from Portland to Seattle for radiation and then relocating with her mom (leaving her beloved Dad and brother behind) to California for 8 months of aggressive chemotherapy.

We couldn’t have imagined the horrors that are the pediatric cancer journey. We also couldn’t have imagined the beauty we’d encounter along the way – the bravery, the love, the generosity, the raw emotion, and the inspiration that can be found around nearly every corner. We’ve been most inspired by our daughter and her larger-than-life spirit. But also by all the other families we’ve met who have committed themselves to improving life for kids fighting this battle. We established this Hero Fund, because we wanted to join them in this commitment – to honor Eva Jane and all the other brave kiddos fighting alongside her.

Filling The Funding Gap

 Filling the Funding Gap

All types of childhood cancers combined receive only 4% of U.S. federal funding for cancer research. There’s a gap to be filled to help these kids.
