Quinn with Dr. Jay Storm
at Cupid's Cranium 5k Run / 1 Mile Walk
At four years old, our daughter, Quinn, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. In an instant, our bubbly, beautiful little girl was one of the nearly 3,000 children diagnosed every year with a brain tumor. And suddenly, we were among those parents struggling to comprehend the diagnosis, asking for prayers and becoming experts in a field we wish we didn't need to know. Blessedly, Quinn's tumor was benign and was removed with a successful surgery. We are eternally grateful to the medical staff at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) who gave Quinn her bright, healthy future.
While Quinn was in the hospital, we vowed that we would use our experience to help others. In thanksgiving for the wonderful health of both our children, Quinn and Shane, and in support of all the amazingly brave children we see at CHOP, we founded At Least Kids. Our intention is to directly fund the Brain Tumor Research Program through the Neurosurgery division of CHOP. In this search for a cure, we can "At Least" aid in the fight against pediatric brain tumors and hope the children on this brave journey can have the full life that every child deserves.
