Power Wheels Car for Wyatt

Wyatt is an engergetic 3 year old boy.  In March he began to suffer from seizures.  A CAT scan showed little Wyatt had Optic Gleoma, a tumor on the optic nerve of his brain. His doctors who originally treated him had never seen this condition, but had read about it in books.  Due to his condition Wyatt is now legally blind in his left eye and the vision in his right eye is also fading. Wyatt was refered to Denver Children's Hospital where he was found to have Neurofibromatosis (NF1), which is likely caused by a genetic disorder.  While the tumor is likely non-cancerous a chemotherapy regimine was started to shrink the tumor and mitigate further vision loss.  The tumor is inoperable and Wyatt is taking medications with a number of side effects.  At times, Wyatt's treatment requires multiple trips per week to Children's.  

Money is being collected with two goals in mind.  First will be to purchase and outfit a Power Wheels police car (like the one pictured below), to look similar to the one his father drives at work.  Wyatt loves police cars, especially the one his dad drives.  

Second, other money will be donated to the Gentry family to help with their expenses during this difficult time.
