BENEFITING: TEAM SCOT INC
Scot Sieczko was diagnosed with a rare Childhood Cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma, also known as RMS, in June 2012. He entered a 54-week trial program at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and was cleared of this Cancer November 2013 only to relapse a month later in December, 2013. Scot fought hard for 2-1/2 years and gained his Angel Wings September 28, 2014. He will be truly missed by all that loved him. We created Team Scot to honor him and keep his memory and vision alive. Scot was adamant we continue the fight to help raise awareness for childhood cancer through fundraising, advocating, and research support. Although our fundraising focus will center on Rhabdomyosarcoma, we will also be donating towards the fight of all childhood and pediatric cancers. While Scot understood that he would not be around to help with Team Scot, he made sure to leave behind a great gift for both his doctors and for patients battling RMS; Scot donated his tumor for research. The very thing that robbed Scot of his future will be used to test new drugs, generate better treatments, and eventually find a cure. How we are helping families!
