BENEFITING: Sarcoma Foundation of America

EVENT DATE: Sep 22, 2013

Julia Rittenhouse

THE STORY:

Wyatt was a guy who always saw the glass half full.  When he went through intensive radiation during his first cancer treatment in 2005, Wyatt lost the ability to grow hair on the left side of his face where the doctors radiated.  He will probably always be the only 19 year old guy I know to embrace half a mustache.  

To help celebrate life, I am throwing my second annual fundraiser, where all proceeds will be donated to the Sarcoma Foundation (www.curesarcoma.org/) The fundraiser is inspired by my late twin brother, Wyatt Mitchell, and will hopefully embody a lof of the things he loved, such as:

majestic t-shirts, peanut butter, ABBA, potato sack races, laughing, meat

There will be: raffle items, games, fun booths, food, beverages, and tortoise races

A brief bio . . . .

On September 22, 1985 a set of twins stumbled into this world -- one butt-first, and the other by the ankle. Wyatt came out butt first, but landed on his feet, running through this world touching people's lives and making them better. I, Julia, am the other twin. I came into the world ankle-first... and even though Wyatt could run circles around me, he was always by my side.
In 2005 Wyatt was first diagnosed with Synovial Cell Sarcoma. He was diagnosed two more times -- in 2009 (days before graduating from the University of Georgia, and weeks before his wedding); and again the summer of 2010. Wyatt bravely fought cancer through multiple surgeries, radiation, and chemo. On December 8, 2010, Wyatt left this earth a man full of love, a husband, a brother, a son, a friend, a leader, a Christian, and an example to thousands of people.
To celebrate the life Wyatt lived, and the life we shared as twins, I want to honor him by throwing this second, annual fundraiser. All proceeds will be donated to the Sarcoma Foundation. Please help share in the love, laughs, and memories.

 Love,
Julia
