Trauner Consulting and Restoration1 CFL are proudly presenting a 5k Run/Walk to benefit six year old Aven and other children fighting childhood cancer. On March 11, 2014, three and a half year old Aven Crane was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of soft tissue cancer, Alveolor Rhabdomyosarcoma. Aven's cancer has been in remission for the past two and a half years and thankfully at present, she is enjoying the life of a normal six year old. However, at best she will be battling a lifetime of long term side effects from her treatments which have included surgeries, 42 weeks of chemotheraphy and a month of daily proton radiation.
There is no cure and very little funding for this type of pediatric cancer. 100% of the proceeds from this race will go to Brighter Days Childhood Cancer Org. Inc. a 501(c)3, (formerly the Aven Crane Cancer Foundation) to help not only Aven, but many other families with financial assistance for expenses not covered by insurance and to help fund a clinical trial for rhabdomyosarcoma. Several thousand dollars in this foundation has already been earmarked for that purpose, however much more is needed. Together we can make a difference.
