Austin E.

Austin was born on April 25, 2006, and passed away from acute lymphoblastic leukemia on July 14, 2009. “He was known as Mr. Sunshine and Wiggle-man, for how much he smiled and danced,” his mother tells us. His family will never forget “the smiles, the laughter, the joy he brought to us. At Children’s Hospital, he always went to everyone else’s rooms to smile and brighten someone’s day. He gave hugs to his nurses, even when they had to give him painful shots in the leg.”
