Marshall’s Story


Marshall Smith was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma a week before his 18th Birthday in January of 2009. After a long and courageous fight Marshall passed away on February 22, 2013 at the age of 22 surrounded by family and friends. During that time period Marshall touched the lives of the people around him and strengthened a small community. He organized events and mentored other children struggling with the same disease. For those of you that knew him, you knew that no matter what he was faced with he always had a smile on his face and two thumbs up. Marshall wanted to leave this world a better place than when he came in it. He wanted a lasting legacy to help other local children get what they need so they can focus on their own fight and recovery. Together we can help make this happen. On Feburary 22, 2013 we picked up where Marshall left off and continue that fight.
