Chandler was born on January 23, 2002 in Astoria, OR. He is number 6 of 7 children in a blended family. Chandler is an amazing 10 year old boy who is facing a big health challenge for someone his age. On August 8, 2012 he was diagnosed with 3rd Stage Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma. He is undergoing chemo every 3 weeks with 5 day stays in the hospital for treatments. He really wants to go back to school but is unable to attend at this time due to his fragile medical condition.
Chandler loves building with Legos and playing video games. He also enjoys board games and school with his tutor. Chandler is cheerful, friendly, outgoing and humble. He enjoys Cub Scouts and has ranked in the top 3 for Pine Wood Derby for the last 3 years. He loves dancing and in the past performed in ballroom dancing at school. Chandler’s favorite activities include playing games with friends and family, football, and baseball. His favorite food is chicken enchiladas. Chandler is also a great baker!
Chandler was really excited when his mom explained Sparrow Club to him and he was thankful for what the kids at school will be doing for him. With this being such a difficult time, the family is grateful there are programs and people out there willing to go above and beyond to help those in need.
Sparrow cash raised for Chandler will help pay for medical bills, everyday living expenses, and the travel costs involved with his trips to the hospital for chemo treatments. Thank you to Quality Food Centers for providing the Club Sponsorship that the students at St Monica School will earn by completing hours of community service.
