Austin loves hunting, shooting and 4-wheeling. He is an avid Traxxas collector. He loves playing video games during chemo treatments and working on his Chevy Blazer. 

In September, Austin thought he pulled a muscle in left leg. He went to the doctor on September 13. The next day, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his left femur and knee. His treatment has been painful, but Austin has been staying strong, which helps his mother. 

Austin hopes to go to college for engineering and one day have a family of his own. 

He is a hero because he has gone through more in the last three months than is imaginable. His mother, Stacey, describes Austin as her strength. 

Stacey wants others who may have recently received a cancer diagnosis to know that chemo is not as bad for everyone, so don't read everything on the Internet!

“Live each day full of fun and strength.” – Austin

Austin lived an inspirational life. Even after being diagnosed with cancer, he learned to walk again with help from his dad, and made the varsity golf team his freshman year in high school. Today, he continues to inspire others to be better and do more.
As a newborn, Kaleigh had discoloration between her retinas and was taken to doctor after doctor for answers. She was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma, and the only plan was to remove her eyes.
Sara was the kind of kid who lit up a room when she walked in. She had the biggest smile and an even bigger heart. Sadly, Sara passed away due to a complication with her treatment during her fight with germinoma.
Lakelynn was just 3 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer. A rare, inoperable sarcoma was wrapped around the nerves that controlled her arm. Surgery, radiation and chemotherapy were not safe treatment options for Lakelynn.
