Review for Grant Beckstrand Cancer Foundation, Newport Beach, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is impossible to describe in a few lines everything that Beckstrand meaning to us but I'll try to do, is that we have a son named Michael Reyes who suffers from a brain tumor extremely dangerous and lethal named Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) or Brain Stem, and according to the doctors he has short time to live and since then we are struggling with all the resources of science to extend its life, For some people we learned about the wonderful work made by Beckstrand and that is how we decided to write to contact them, receiving immediate response by the Director of Development & Communications Kaerie Ray, we explained to her the situation of our son and immediately they were moved and put all their efforts and resources to give happiness to our son, and not only to him but also to us, giving us a Christmas that we will never forget.
To get started they asked us to send them a wish list of our son, and not only for our son but also from us, to comply with his surprise they contacted a celebrity known as Gilles Marini whom a wonderful day came to our house with his family and with Lil an executive of Beckstrand playing the role of Santa Claus, the gifts were incredible, our child's happiness overflowed everything imaginable, they not only gave him the Wii-U which he dreamed so much and that we never have been able to give, but the best was the magical day that we spent as a family with them, and in addition to many more gifts they also surprised him with tickets to visit Disneyland and California Adventure, also gave him a dinner at one of his favorite restaurants, and cash, as well Backstrand paid our gas bill that we had disconnected for more than six months, moreover Becktsrand through Kaerie Ray keep a warm touch with us.
We could say much more about them, but just We know that they are not from this planet, they are true angels who have brought a memorable Christmas at our home and a great happiness to our son that he still remembers and remember forever, they are wonderful!...Thanks BECKSTRAND!
Michael's Parents.
