The news is not only shocking, but bears weight for many across the country. Todd's work has impacted the lives of countless families. After earning an honorable discharge from the USMC in 2004, Todd wanted to become an educator and mentor for adolescents. He became a wilderness therapy instructor at SUWS of the Carolinas in 2006. He has dedicated the past 12 years of his career to helping others, and currently serves as the Adolescent Program Director for the non-profit organization, Devereaux Cleo Wallace.
Todd and Angel continue to work and want to keep the schedule as predictable as possible for their two girls, Graylin and Aloni. Anyone who knows Todd, also knows that he is patient, meticulous, and relentless in pursuit. Whether solving a line at the crag, helping a teen in crisis, or facing the fight of his life, Todd continues to be a rock in his community.
There have been some encouraging moments in the early phases of treatment. Todd is in good hands at the Rocky Mountain Treatment Center, and continues the chemo treatments as prescribed. Of course, chemo-therapy has it's own negative side effects. We also know that the race against cancer is a marathon. Your donation will help ease the financial burden for a family that sheds light for so many.
