Fundraiser for Tristan Hicks Wellness Fund

Tristan HicksOn Dec. 14, 2011, Phagans is hosting an event to raise money for the Tristan Hicks Wellness Fund.

Tristan Hicks, the 2-year-old son of Phagans graduate Emily Hicks, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in February. Despite the fact that his family does not have any health insurance, Tristan has already undergone two surgeries. With more treatment to follow and no end in sight to the medical bills, we’ve been moved to hold a fundraiser for these special members of the Phagans community.

    Our thought and prayers are with Tristan and his family. Our donation is made in the memory of our niece, Amy Patterson, a Phagan graduate.

  2. Emily Hicks says:

    THANK YOU! Thank you more than i can say for all your love and support. Phagans staff, students, and especially the owner Barbera will ALWAYS have a very special place in my and my family’s hearts for doing what you all have done. I have no words. This has been the hardest time in our lives and some of the weight has been lifted. We still have a long road ahead of us, but it eases my heart to know that so many people are in our corner helping us get Triston through this.
    So far through this process he has already had multiple surgeries and will have at least one more, next week in fact. We have started chemotherapy and radiation to make sure his tumor does not come back. It seems like we have hit about every bump in the road and every red light. But, my strong and amazing little boy still can find his smile and still has his silly sense of humor. ( he told the nurse,”You godda be kiddin me, lady!” NO JOKE! And trying to fly his RC helecopter at one of the other nurses.) He is my insparation to stay strong and keep smiling. If he can go through all this and keep fighting and laughing, then so can I.
    Again, thank you all.

    Love,
    Emily

    Emily I admire your strength so much. You always have such a bright energy, and contagious laugh, no matter what. Your story really touches my heart since I have a young Son too. I think of you and Tristan often. And I will continue to! I will be working hard in your honor on the 14th. Miss seeing your face around school. Sincerely, Heather

You said it best Em, if he can smile and be strong then so can everyone else! I want you to know if you need anything AT ALL I am willing to help in anyway I am able. Triston is a strong little trooper, he was meant to have you guys as his parents for a special reason.
