Big Bikes 2020 is Almost Here!
Each year, 95.7 The Rock’s Rock Foundation puts on Big Bikes for Little Tikes, a ride to help a child in need. Join the ride May 16th, 2020 and help make Austin’s wish come true! Austin is a fourth grader at Viroqua Elementary school in Viroqua, Wi. He loves to be outdoors fishing, hunting, biking, and whatever else he can get into.
On June 1st, Austin woke up with a horrible headache and was taken to the ER. They did a CT scan and found a tumor. Later on, Austin was officially diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer. Austin slipped into what’s called posterior Fossa Syndrome as a result of the tumor removal, which caused him to loose his ability to walk, talk and eat. Thankfully, with hard work, Austin was able to regain his speech and hopes he will be able to walk again someday soon! Austin is so brave and has had to face 6 additional rounds of chemotherapy, regular blood draws, MRIs and spinal taps regularly to check on his health and the treatment’s success.
Austin hasn’t been able to attend school much. His blood counts have been low, so he was at high risk of getting sick. During all of this he has kept a smile on his face! He is very much looking forward to having a summer he can enjoy this year, and we want to give that to Austin and his family. His “wish” is for a Northwoods lake getaway where he can spend time with his family relaxing, sightseeing and enjoying himself. With your help we can make Austin’s wish come true!
