My Story

Hello meet my son Ricky he's 9 years old and was just diagnosed with DIPG a canceres brain tumor the monster of all cancers. Ricky loves his music, hot wheels, Fast and the Furious everything, and most of all he loves ATV and quads that's where he feels the most free and normal. Ricky's smile is what brings us the most joy and with radiation and chemo treatment and meds he's doing and taking it's been hard on him and having to watch our baby go through this is the hardest thing we've ever had to do. All though we've had a horrible two years prior wondering what was going on with Ricky trying to get him help but nobody would listen would just push Ricky aside and blame his behavior.... Really We told everyone something was wrong and now maybe even too late we know why things where that way. The worst part is that there is no cure for it. Some may things he still needs to do. What we are having to do is pack a lifetime in so little time. We ask please anything and everything helps even to make the littles wishes come true. Let's help a warrior of cancer make them come true ... Nobody should ever fight this battle alone so let's show Ricky he's not ;Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year.
