Noah Halek Strong

On November 26, 2019, our 7 year old son, Noah Halek, was diagnosed with DIPG, a terminal brain cancer.  The countdown clock starts with no warning sign, no game plan and you have to be strong and purposeful because all you can see is his beautiful smile begging you for a chance to shine on just a little longer. 

We are here and there is no way that we’re going down without a fight. YOU...our family, our friends, our tribe have helped us rise to the occasion. We will bring the fight forward. In this moment of suffering I’ve seen what the human spirit can do and I’ve felt the power we command when we are united. No words can possibly express our gratitude. Thank you for the enormous outpouring of love and support towards our family.

Please know that this is just the beginning. We will not let any statistics dictate our journey. We are fighting the good fight for our Noah and other family’s going through the same. We will move mountains for our son. So we ask that you continue to share our page. We are not ready to give up, we are going to fight this illness with everything we have. It will take a village but we’re ready to do what it takes to cure our boy. 

Thank you all for your support. It means the world to us. 

Antonio & Silvia Halek
