#TommyStrong

Our mission is to bring greater awareness to Childhood Cancer especially Ewing’s Sarcoma Cancer, which is one of the rarest forms of childhood cancer. Our mission for this month was inspired by 7 year old Tommy Wainwright, cousin of Krebs CJDR Sales Manager Amanda Pietrone, and his courageous current battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma. Every year Krebs CJDR chooses a month to raise awareness and support by coming together with our Krebs Family of customers and friends to truly make a difference in the world. We want to take Tommy’s example of strength and determination and make his wish of helping other kids like him, through his #Tommystrong and Tommy’s Army initiative, fight their cancer too! The journey through childhood cancer is a very hard road, and we want to help provide assistance to these children and families so that they can focus on their child and their treatments. Not enough government funding is being used to support Childhood Cancer and we hope to inspire others to work with us to make a change and make a difference. Tommy has inspired us all, in every day of his battle, to come together and beat childhood cancer!! Together we are #TommyStrong!

We’re proud partners in the community with:
