Patient & Family Events 
February 13, 2019
Thanks to the initiative of two amazing high school students who collected & donated over 50 new stuffed animals, SebastianStrong was able to share a little Valentine's love & joy with the patients & families at 2 local clinics/hospitals. The day included pizza, donuts, arts & crafts, a stuffed animal to take home, and plenty of smiles to go around. A well-deserved shout-out to Mojo Donuts for providing some very tasty treats.
NPCF Sunshine Project Research Summit 
February 14 & 15 2019 
Three of SebastianStrong's Board Members, as well as all three physicians on our Medical Advisory Board attended this conference. With at least 80 of the nation's top pediatric cancer researchers in attendance, it was both exciting & encouraging to learn about their ideas for research projects & clinical trials aimed at treating & curing pediatric cancer.

Raise Your Drink & Raise Some Funds 
March 30, 2019 
For the 2nd year in a row, SebastianStrong teamed up with The Tank Brewing Co. to raise awareness & funding for childhood cancer research. The Tank brewed a special beer in honor of Sebastian & a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the beer & food sold that evening were donated to the Foundation. With over 400 guests in attendance, the evening was a great success. We were happy to see so many new & familiar faces.
