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.
