My Story

Austin continues to thrive, now 19 year old and very healthy, he is adjusting to college life. He is exploring the creative side of himself, enjoying photography. The Home Depot continues to treat him well and he is learning how to repair homes and build gardens. This past summer the Make-A-Wish foundation elicited the help of Chip Foose and American Muscle to completely overhaul his mustang...WOW what a car. Air soft guns are still his passion but recently he was ban from ever shooting them in the house by his Step Mom (I had to agree with her on that one) Austin has said many times that he is grateful for the St. Baldrick's organization, he is proud to be one of our honored child.
