Andrew's Ride 4 Life 2017... Please Help

Hello everyone,

Ride 4 Life 2017 will be for a very young boy named Andrew.... He has a rare form of cancer, and he and his family could use our help.

Ride 4 Life will be hosting their annual fundraising event at Ocotillo Wells on February 17 - 19, 2017. As always, it's a lot of fun and for a good cause. There will be a poker run, horseshoe tournament, raffle and a pancake breakfast. Tribal Whips will be donating product for the raffle.

For information or more details, please refer to the attached documents / images. If you email us @ [email protected], we'll be happy to send you the PDF document.

Below is a brief summary of Andrew and his story.

The fight against cancer goes on. There is no one we know who can say they DO NOT have a friend or relative who has not battled this terrible illness. Once again there is a child and family who needs our love and support. For the last 12 years your compassion and generosity has been a blessing to so many families. Through this heart whelming event we all come together in order to make a difference in a child’s life.

Location will be same as last year, see attached map and GPS coordinates.
This year Ride 4 Life is proudly sponsoring 3 1⁄2 year old Andrew Wratten. Andrew is the son of Tim & Linda Wratten, who also have a 2 year old son Anthony. On June 09, 2014, when Andrew was 13 months old, he was diagnosed with stage 4, high risk Neuroblastoma.

Andrew is a baby no more, he's now a 3 1/2 year old toddler with the strength and determination of a true warrior, hence his nickname "Our Little Warrior". To date, he has endured 16 rounds of chemotherapy, 24 doses of radiation, 9 cycles of immunotherapy (3F8), 2 resection surgeries (head and abdomen), 2 central lines coming out of his chest and 1 port placed beneath his skin on his chest, countless blood and platelet transfusions and endless hospital visits and hospital stays. And yet, he still manages to smile and have a beautiful personality. He has relapsed twice since diagnosis. The first relapse was in December 2015; the cancer appeared in both legs, femur area.
The second relapse was October 2016; the cancer appeared in his jaw bone as an actual tumor.

Since March 2015, Andrew has been treated in New York City at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) by a team of Neuroblastoma specialists. Neuroblastoma is a rare form of childhood cancer affecting approximately 700 children a year. MSKCC treats the largest number of Neuroblastoma patients in the country. The financial burden of battling cancer is enormous, especially when traveling across the country for treatment.

On 11/21/16 Andrew began a new clinical trial (ch14.18 I/T) at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). The current plan is to do 2 cycles of this treatment and evaluate results with scans. As of 11/16/16, an MRI confirmed the tumor in Andrew's jaw shrunk a little with the last dose of chemo
he received and the MIBG and CT scan confirmed the rest of his body remains clear of disease.
