Carter Kettner

Carter Kettner

In support of some great friends Joe and Cinnamon Kettner, borrowed from their website: Carter was the 6 year old son of Joe and Cinnamon Kettner. At age 5, he was diagnosed with an inoperable malignant brainstem glioma on February 17th, 2009. He loved singing, watching movies, and riding his John Deere tractor. His thoughtfulness and appreciation towards others was unfounded. He was a perfect gentleman, and met every girl with a kiss on the lips. His illness didn’t make him the boy he was; cancer was just something that happened to him. He continued to live every day, trusting his mommy and daddy. He loved his crazy little brother Bowen, and he laughed though his antics, calling him a beast and a freak. He loved his hospitals, doctors and nurses, and did everything that was ever asked of him. Carter was perfection in a son. He was indeed, the meaning of HOPE. To read more.. http://ckmc.org/about-ckmc/carters-story/

My Story

7 May 2019

This June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge for the 2nd year in a row to fight kids' cancer in honor of Joe and Cinnamon's child Carter Kettner! (http://ckmc.org/)

Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

My goal is to surpass last years goal of 75 miles and achieve 100 miles. I have never achieved 100 miles in a month to date. I do have a target of $500 donation and welcome any support.

Thank you.
