From Ian's mom, Lori:
Hi everyone, I don’t usually share a lot of personal things on social media, but my son, Ian, was diagnosed with cancer this past week (Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma). Ian was having a lot of pain which we assumed was sports related since he is an athlete and quite active. He’s been at Children’s Hospital for a week while the doctors came to their diagnosis. Obviously, this news was such a shock and we are beside ourselves...he will begin chemotherapy this week. We are optimistic he will get through this. Please keep him in your thoughts as he begins his healing journey. Thank you!
From the organizer, Lucy:
We have lived across the street from the Trautweins for 11 years, and watched their kids grow up. Ian is a great kid with a great family, and we are doing everything we can to support the Trautweins as they walk this path. Please give what you can.
