My Story

Ben Baltz is our active 9 year old who plays soccer and likes to do anything in the water. He is a great student and a inspiration to all who meet him. He completed the Nashville YMCA Kids Marathon in April 2010, 5 miles a week for 5 weeks then 1 mile in Nashville. He amazed everyone who saw him running by on "Running Blade". You see Ben lost half his right leg to Osteosarcoma in May 2008. He is currently featured in the American Way magazine, this article highlights TeamUnite and the 46 Mommas Shaving for the Brave. http://www.americanwaymag.com/cancer-ben-baltz-henry-tucker-disease-nashville http:www.caringbridge.org/visit/benbaltz to see all the other stuff this child of mine has done...I have put many video's on youtube to inspire the newly amputated child or adult--to "Be Ben Strong" Thank you to St. Baldricks for supporting the 46 Mommas! Sincerely, JC Baltz
