The generosity of others is amazing.... we received this from a young girl who passed up birthday gifts to donate to the SOF:

Young Girl Inspires Researcher — And May Change Cancer Treatment
At the age of 12, Shannon was diagnosed on April 15, 2011 with a brainstem glioma tumor (DIPG). This was a terminal diagnosis as this type of tumor is inoperable and incurable. Shannon fought her nine month battle with determination and grace until passing away on January 6, 2012.
Hear Shannon's wish to make a difference:
Shannon lived her life with a positive attitude, always working hard for what she wanted, and being a good friend and teammate. In her memory, this foundation will support youth who carry on those ideals by awarding scholarships. In addition, funds will be used to support brain tumor research as we work towards a cure.
