My Story

The day after his 12th birthday, Brendan was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma. This is a very rare cancer in children. He had his right kidney removed and is today CANCER FREE. He has been able to return to playing sports and has not just survived, but thrived. Brendan is a great student and also loves to play the guitar. He returns to Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago every three months for check ups. We are so thankful for all of the support we have received and will always do all we can to support all children diagnosed with cancer.
