WHY? (see below) . . .

Six years ago my family supported me in founding the Half-Stache Bash in honor of my late, twin brother. Celebrating a birthday without Wyatt is never easy. The Half-Stache Bash has given us a fun and positive way to celebrate life and make a little difference in the world. All proceeds are donated to the Sarcoma Foundation of America, to raise research for the type of cancer Wyatt was diagnosed with.

Since last year’s Half-Stache Bash I graduated from nursing school and am now a Registered Nurse! Without a doubt the inspiration for my new calling came from Wyatt and his experiences as a patient. Seeing patients and helping them advocate for their health on a daily basis is a constant reminder of the importance of healthcare founded on research. We’d love you to join us in celebrating Wyatt’s life while contributing to cancer research.

Why the “Half-Stache”?: Like many cancers, Sarcoma is hard to treat. Wyatt battled intensive surgeries, chemotherapy treatments, and radiation. Being a strong-willed man with a great sense of humor, Wyatt didn’t let these treatments defeat him. He wore them proudly. Radiation gave him half a ‘stache, that he wore whole-heartedly.

Sarcoma Sucks!: Sarcoma is a type of cancer that originates in connective tissue. Connective tissue is vascular, so the cancer cells can metastasize through the circulatory system, which is why Sarcoma is a rare and aggressive cancer. There is a lot to learn about the causes and treatments of Sarcoma, which is why funding this research is so important to me and the many people affected by Sarcoma.

Help Spread the Word!
