DSCF Crossfit Kids is partnering up with Tales of Reese for a charity WOD in honor of little Tommy Vasile III.
Tommy passed away tragically before his second birthday on January 31, 2014. While his time with us was far too short - Tommy's life and remarkable strength has touched so many. For those of you that know the Vasile family you know firsthand their inspiring courage, love, and strength. Tommy had an undiagnosed medical condition that caused him to have seizures and did not allow him to do things that all of us do on a daily basis; walk, talk and eat to name a few. We called him our "Superman" because of the fight he displayed throughout his 20 months of life.
In honor of Tommy we will donate the proceeds to Maria Fareri Children's Hospital. Feel free to wear your superman T-shirts!

Liz Beth had emergency surgery on October 29, 2016. A surgery that was supposed to take 1 hour ended up taking almost 4 as the doctors removed a bowling ball sized tumor. This tumor is a cancerous Dysgerminoma tumor. If she has any chance to win this battle she needs treatment to begin immediately. Unfortunately in the weeks to follow the family learned that their health insurance is basically worthless. They denied their claime and will not cover any treatments or the over 20,000 dollar surgery to remove the tumor. Liz Beth has a two year old son. Any donation will help!

Charlie Is a beautiful 8 month old baby girl. At 20 weeks pregnant, they learned that Charlie had congestive heart problems. At four months old, Charlie had her first open heart surgery at Children's Hospital in Oakland, about an hour drive from where she lives. She came through very strong, but it seems that this is just the first of what could be many surgeries. Tony continues to work, and makes the drive to the hospital as often as he can, and Korie comes back and forth as well. They do have insurance, but it's not covering everything. They owe $6000 just from the birth and hospital stay, and have yet to receive the bill for this first surgery.

Ride with Reese in honor of Baby Grace! At 6 month old, our daughter Grace, was diagnosed with Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdiod Tumor (ATRT). An extremely rare, very difficult to treat pediatric brain tumor. The tumor has been fully resected and there are no other tumors present in her brain or on her spine. Her spinal fluid was negative for cancer cells. Grace has already completed 5 rounds of chemotherapy, 1 stem cell harvest, and 3 stem cell rescues. In December, it was determined that Grace was No Evidence of Disease. By the first week in January, Grace had facial paralysis that ultimately was determined to be caused by a recurrent tumor. The cancer was back. She started Proton-Beam Radiation Therapy in January 13 and completed the treatment on February 24. She is currently receiving maintenance chemo. Grace has endured a many setbacks, like a subdural hematoma, shunt revision, c. Diff, numerous infections, and a PICC reinsertion. She is a fighter!
