Austin E
in honor of Austin E

Austin E

Austin was born on April 25, 2006, and passed away on July 14, 2007. He suffered from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Austin was the beloved son of Matthew and Shellena, and the younger brother of Megan and older brother of Elise. “He was known,” his mother recalls, “as ‘Mr. Sunshine’ and ‘Wiggleman,’ for the way he smiled and danced. At Children’s Hospital in Seattle, he always went to everyone else’s rooms, to smile and brighten someone’s day. He always gave hugs to his nurse, even after getting painful shots from her.”

Austin’s family would like to thank Super Sibs and the National Children’s Cancer Society for their help.
