Meet Baxter, our SuperHero and Inspiration to be BAXSTRONG
At four years old, Baxter Duddy was diagnosed with Brain cancer, anaplastic Ependymoma, on April 6, 2015. It was not an easy fight, but Baxter never let his 'tumor' stop him or let it bring him down, and he was often found listening to "Don't Worry, Be Happy."
Baxter always had a Smile on his face; as his mom, I believe he did that for me, he knew I was worried, but his smile made me smile every time. After years of Fighting, on August 10, 2019, at eight years old, Baxter took his last breath.
Baxter's love and strength were so profound that I knew that something good would come from Baxter's Fight, and it has, and Good continues to come!
During Baxter's fight, we traveled to 4 different medical facilities for treatments over those years, and Pilots for Christ helped our family get to his treatment quickly. We are honored to help them do the same for other families.
He LOVED getting packages in the mail. We decided to share his Smile and some of his favorite activities with kids that are also fighting childhood cancer. We know firsthand the power of a Smile!
