Hello, my name is Zachary Taylor, and I am fundraising for my Cousin Cole Mullins.
Cole is a 17-year-old senior at Hanford High School in West Richland, WA. Cole is a natural athlete who plays the quarterback position. He is a leader, both on and off the field. He is a kind-hearted soul who can always put a smile on anyone’s face and is always there for his loved ones. He is dedicated to perfecting his athletic ability, as he has wanted to play college football since he was 5 years old. His dream was always to be the starting quarterback for the Washington State Cougars – that crimson and grey runs deep in his veins.
A couple of months ago, Cole was starting to feel weakness in his throwing arm, and some numbness in his left hand, so he was sent to occupational and massage therapy.
On Sunday, July 24, Cole was rushed to the emergency room due to the numbness spreading to his legs. When he reached the emergency room, the doctors let him and his parents know that a tumor was digging into his spinal cord, and he needed to be airlifted to Seattle Children's Hospital. Once there, doctors rushed him into surgery to remove the tumor. After running some tests, Cole has been diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma – an aggressive cancer.
This fundraiser would help cover medical costs, transportation – gas costs to and from West Richland for the next 8 months (for chemotherapy and radiation), food, and any unknown medical equipment/expenses that might come up within the next 8 months.
Our goal is $10,000. Any donation will help out Cole and his family during this difficult time.
