The fact is, in one way or another, cancer may affect us all. That’s why it is up to all of us to play a part in fighting cancer during our lifetime. Cashy’s journey has given us all the opportunity to unite, with the same common goal, help children fighting cancer.
The Cash Hyde Foundation’s mission is to fight cancer with smiles, prayers, positive energy and provide information and financial support for children with cancer and their families.
Fighting Cancer with Smiles
Most kids are transported around the hospital in little tyke’s rubber wagons and cars. It is awesome to see how happy it makes the kids to get out of their rooms and have a little fun. We learned that you can fight Cancer one smile at a time and that even if the smile only lasts a minute it is a minute that Cancer isn’t winning. Unfortunately the wagons/cars are limited also it is hard to maneuver them and the IV poles without two people and tangling the IV lines.
We decided one day that the wagons and cars needed to be customized with stickers and have IV poles mounted to them. We purchased Cashy his own Little Tike’s car and mounted a Reggae Colored IV pole to it. We put stickers of Bob Marley One Love, Monkey’s, Cancer Fears Me, 4th ICS, and our favorite hometown team, the University of Montana Grizzlies all over it. We named it the Reggae Runner and Cashy had many happy times cruising the halls of Primary Children’s in it.
