The cruise for cancer went better than me and Gjerdy planned. A lot of kids came and supported my good friend Dylan Witschen who recently died of cancer. It meant a lot to us to have everyone come out and cruise. Dylan was the toughest kid I know. He fought cancer for a while and had our whole school support him because he was just a great kid that didn't deserve any of this. So me and Gjerde set up the benefit to raise money for his family. He was very strong and so is his family. The worst part I thought was the last two weeks when he was just laying in bed unable to talk or walk and that just made the benefit so much more special.
Last wish from him was for us to live like we were dying and live to the fullest. He was a huge insperation to all of us.
We miss ya Dyl

Childhood cancer research can literally save and change the lives of children with cancer around the world. That's why the St. Baldrick's Foundation is committed to funding the best and most-promising research, wherever it takes place.
When you make a donation, be confident knowing that your money is going to the world's leading pediatric oncologists to fight all types of childhood cancers, for kids of all ages.
Children with cancer aren't just little adults fighting adult cancers. They require unique treatment and research, yet with less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget directed to childhood cancers, research funding that’s just for kids is scarce.
That’s where you and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation step in – to make children with cancer a priority and help them live long, healthy lives.
But the clock is ticking – every 3 minutes, a child is diagnosed with cancer. Join us today in the ripple effect that will change the world.
