Wade’s Army is a nonprofit 501(c)3 leading the charge against the pediatric cancer, Neuroblastoma. Celebrating the courageous life of Wade DeBruin, Sept. 22, 2009-Nov. 12, 2011, we are rallying troops to continue his fight against this disease. By contributing you are helping support families affected by Neuroblastoma.

“Cancer is a word everyone knows. And a word no one wants to hear. Certain cancers are common household names. Most people have heard of leukemia, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Neuroblastoma, on the other hand, is mysterious to many. Wade’s Wings wants to change that. Because we believe that the only way to conquer this extremely aggressive childhood cancer is to give it a name.” – Heather DeBruin

These are the courageous words from the DeBruin family who are leading the charge against the pediatric cancer, Neuroblastoma, in the name of their brave son, Wade. Shortly after conquering learning to walk, Wade DeBruin took on a challenge that every parent fears for their child. Wade was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at 18 months old. Neuroblastoma is the leading pediatric cancer killer. Almost 70% of children who are diagnosed with Neuroblastoma have an advanced stage of the disease, and less than 40% of those with this advanced disease live five years. Wade put up strong fight, and on November 12, 2011 he passed away.

Wade’s Army was created to rally against Neuroblastoma, and give Wade DeBruin and Wade’s Wings leaders to help in the crusade. Last year we were able to raise over fifty thousand dollars in Wade’s name for Neuroblastoma research and support of families battling the cancer. Wade’s Army 501(c)3 offers tax exemptions for all individuals and companies that show their support. Once again this year on November 12, 2015, Wade’s Army will be gathering across the world to bring awareness to Wade’s battle and put up a fight for him during a CrossFit Football workout dedicated in his name. We are recruiting you to join Wade’s Army to spread the word, support the cause and band together in the fight against Neuroblastoma!
