My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Because of people like you, advances in childhood cancer treatments will come SOONER rather than LATER. Time is invaluable. I wish I had more time with my son. Finding a cure will help ensure children impacted by cancer can live healthy lives and celebrate milestones with their families for years to come. The turn of unfortunate events went from Gunner experiencing an uncontrollable nosebleed to being told he had leukemia all within a 48-hour period. Just days before his diagnosis, Gunner was opening college acceptance letters and scholarships. Everything that he had set his sights to accomplish, seemed to be falling into place. How could my healthy, vibrant boy have cancer? It all seemed surreal. On Tuesday, October 26, 2021, my dear son Gunner Diego Negrete passed away from leukemia at 17 years of age, a mere 23 days into his cancer treatment plan. Throughout his childhood and teenage years, Gunner was intensely passionate about his interests and hobbies which began with a love of pirates to being a magician and ultimately a love of the Vegas Golden Knights hockey team, the Raiders football team, music and breakdancing. Gunner was so many things, to so many people, in so many ways. He brought a joy to my life that cannot be captured in words. I have most certainly cherished my 17 years with him. He was and always will be, my shooting star.
