My son lost his father to brain cancer (GBM4) in March 2011, he was diagnosed in March 2010. He was only 8 years old at the time and saw his Dad suffer for one full year, it was incredibly hard for him and so hard to watch as a parent. We found VABC in the Summer of 2011, my son was driven to do something to make a difference and my research led me to VABC. They were so kind with my son and really made him feel part of the organization. We formed a team, raised a good amount of money and my son was given the Caregiver Award at the 2011 walk. This experience helped him to heal in many ways. Darren Port and his team at Powered By Professionals are wonderful, caring people that are all doing fantastic work and helping countless people. We plan on being involved indefinitely and helping as many people as we can. My son often tells me that he hopes that we are helping to stop brain cancer so another kid will not lose his parent. VABC is helping to make this a reality!
