Keegan Wilder fundraiser auction #4 .22 ammunition
« on: December 26, 2017, 07:52:38 AM »
We are rolling out auction #4 for Keegan.  Keep on pulling together for this kid and his family and let's do what we can to lighten their load a little.

If you haven't heard Keegan's story, here is a bit of background from Karl Blanchard

 "Keegan Wilder is not your typical 7th grader.  He's a hardened mountain mule deer hunter.  Though he's a little small in stature,  he has the heart of a lion and is just as fierce!  He had been feeling a faint pain for a few months but nothing that would have caused concern.  Almost felt like a pulled muscle.  He asked to be taken into the urgent care because he was having a hard time breathing without any pain.  He was immediately referred to Seattle Children's where the family was given the devasting news after several blood tests, xray, and ultrasounds that he indeed had cancer.  The mass is quite large behind his rib cage growing towards his lung.  He had surgery within one day where they biopsied the mass to determine the exact kind of cancer (so they know what appropriate treatment to provide for that type of cancer) and also placed a port for his chemotherapy.

He recently had to have his port moved which involved a second surgery.  He is having a difficult time keeping weight on so a feeding tube has been placed to help him get the calories he needs. 

Keegan is the toughest kid you will ever meet.  From the age of 5 he has been chasing his dad and I into some of the toughest mule deer country the west has to offer.  His first deer at age 10 was over 7 miles into the Idaho backcountry.  Even though he is on round 5 of chemo and very weak, he is always smiling. 

Keegan and family still have a tough road ahead of them and can use our support.  Life can be so cruel and no child should ever have to go through what Keegan has.  Let's help make this dark time a little brighter."

Auction #4 is a brick of 333 rounds of .22LR ammunition from SniperDanWA

Auction will run till 9pm Wednesday the 27th. Winner by time stamp. Payment can be made by PayPal or a check mailed to Karl Blanchard. Those details will be delivered to the winner at the close of the auction.

Happy bidding!!

Been gone and missing all of this. You guys are awesome!! I have a daughter this age, can't begin to imagine how tough this must be.

Keep fighting Keegan, we are all praying for you to come out of this stronger. I can see you beating Karl to the top next season and shooting the biggest buck on the mountain. He won't have a chance with you on the same mountain  :)
