Where There are Warriors Benefit

We have decided to cancel the live portion of our Where There are Warriors Benefit. Our Family has been exposed to Covid and have decided to quarantine as a family through November 6. The Virtual Benefit  and virtual auction are still on! Click here  to register for the silent auction and click here to purchase your virtual ticket! 


How to help

Wayland lost his life to DIPG, but we won't stop fighting in his honor. We plan to live the rest of our lives keeping Wayland's memory alive and raising funds to help researchers find a cure. We especially want to help the research physicians at Stanford University, where we donated Wayland's tumor and brain.  


We started this website to take all of you, Wayland's Warriors, along with us on our journey without Wayland. We also want to keep you posted on our fundraising efforts. We ask for your support, in any way you can; prayers, spreading awareness, friendship or raising funds. Please join us in our fight for the kids and families who still battle this nasty disease. Be sure to watch the website for new DIPG research developments and upcoming events.

If you are interested in doing more for our cause,  we gratefully accept monetary donations to our foundation.  Be assured that your tax-deductible contributions will go directly to cancer research or to help a local family affected by DIPG.
