Wade's Army is a 501(c)3 non-profit bringing the fight against neuroblastoma and remembering Wade DeBruin's battle with this deadly pediatric cancer.
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 Army was founded by the Welbourn and DeBruin families to recruit others to use their Power for good and bring the fight to this pediatric cancer. The Wade's Army mission is to bring action to neuroblastoma, an under-funded, little understood form a pediatric cancer through funding Phase I Clinical Trials and providing direct financial assistance to families in the fight with this deadly disease.
