Ruby's Story: 

At only 3 years old, little Ruby has already had a difficult journey. She was born with a large mass on the back of her head that resembled a tumor. Upon testing and examination her doctors concluded her mass was the result of a genetic mutation, similar in characteristics to melanoma, but was benign. When she was old enough the mass was surgically removed.

During a routine MRI scan this spring, a technician inadvertently captured the top of Ruby’s lungs in the image. A CT scan soon followed and it was discovered that Ruby’s lungs were full of tumors. She was given the diagnosis of Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma. She is currently receiving treatment at Primary Children’s Medical Center.

How can you help?

The crushing burden of childhood cancer is impossible to fully grasp. Our incredible community is rallying around Ruby and the Thackeray family to raise money and lift their spirits as they continue this cancer fight.

Help by spreading the word about this event and attend with your whole family!
