Ward’s Story

My name is Ward Wright and I am 9 years old. I was diagnosed on April 22, 2009 (at age 3 ½) with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Please pray for me.



My name is Ward Wright and I am 9 years old.  I was diagnosed on April 22, 2009 (at age 3 ½) with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma (solid tumor cancer).  My parents are Maranda & Tom and my little sister is Hallie Kay.  We live in Albany, Georgia where we attend Gillionville Baptist Church and I attend 3rd grade at Deerfield Windsor School.  I love to play outside with my dog, Dooly, and also enjoy golfing with Daddy and baseball.  I have been cancer-free for 4 years and I praise the Lord every day for His healing!

Latest Journal Update

God is LOVE!

Hello CB Family!

It's been a while since my last update and that's because life is NORMAL and busy, praise The Lord!!  Ward is doing very well in all aspects of life - growing like a weed and becoming an expert in aggravating little sister, Hallie Kay!  Words just can't explain his love for life - it's unlike anything I've seen and quite difficult to describe.  Most of the time he is full of kisses and silliness and energy and I can only attribute it to a special kind of joy that God gives cancer survivors like him!  God is LOVE!  And He is so gracious to us though we don't deserve any of it!!

Speaking of LOVE, we are excited to announce our new fundraiser for the Pay it ForWARD Fund (our local division of the Jay's HOPE Org.).  The Love Run has been gifted to our Fund by a local group who created it last year to support a friend battling cancer.  The race was a huge success and the coordinators desired to see it continue.  Therefore, we are honored to invite you to the 2nd Annual Love Run on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at Wild Side Running Store in Albany.  There will be 5K and 1 mile courses and participants can register at www.active.com.  The event is sure to be fun for avid runners as well as families who are just looking to enjoy the great outdoors together while supporting an awesome cause!

To learn more about Jay's HOPE and The Pay it ForWARD Fund, please visit www.jayshope.org or find Pay it ForWARD Fund on Facebook.  If you  have any questions, you can reach us at thepayitforwardfund@hotmail.com.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support!  God bless you all!!

In HIS LOVE,

Maranda
