Ford Tough

The Ford man is the happiest 2 year old you will ever meet. He has the brightest smile and sweetest little voice. He brings so much joy to his family and everyone he meets! The Bartle family’s world completely stopped when Ford was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma on August 30, 2019. 

Ford is just at the very beginning stages of his treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital in New York City. Ford is one of five children and during his treatment, both he and his parents will be away from the rest of their family in Pittsburgh, which will be difficult beyond words. 

We have created this page to help ease the minds of the Bartle family, hopefully take care of some of the travel expenses of traveling back and forth to see all of their kids when at all possible and also to allow them to focus all of their time and energy on Ford! 

Ford will, without a doubt, beat this - there is no question!!! He is so brave and so tough! He can’t fight this alone though, he needs the help and support of his family, friends, and entire community to fight with him! The Bartle family is overwhelmed and forever grateful for all of the love, support and prayers they have already received! 

Please like “Ford Tough.” on Facebook to continue receiving updates on Ford’s journey! 
And as always keep praying!! We got this!

Ford Tough.
