Kasey Ryan Radford - 1/1/98 - 2/4/09

It is with a heavy heart that I must share that Kasey Ryan Radford passed away Wednesday February 4th at 7:26am. He had a massive brain bleed Tuesday night. Kasey was a wonderful little boy that I met in 2006 when he attended his first Relay For Life event. He was in a wheel chair and had just finished a round of chemo. The following 2 years, he was leading our Survivor Lap with a big smile on his face, while the rest of us had tears and smiles on ours, watching this brave young man proudly walk the Survivor Lap. Kasey impressed everyone he met with his determination to fight this evil thing called cancer and he was determined to live his life to the fullest, no matter how short it would be. We are all lucky and blessed to have had this little boy in our lives. We have all learned lessons from him and his amazing family. We will also fight harder than ever to find a cure for this disease so that no parent has to lose their child to cancer.

If any of you are interested in attending Kasey's service, it will be on Monday at 7:00pm. It will be held at City Harvest Church located at 8100 NW 9th Avenue in Vancouver, WA 98665. Get there early, as seating will fill up quickly.

I am attaching pictures of Kasey below that I hope you all enjoy. We love you Kasey and are happy that you are now cancer free and flying high watching over all of us.
