Brady is dealing with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia and he also has severe Autism and is non-verbal. His dad, Leroy, has some cardiac issues that he contends with. We know these conditions can become overwhelming for families. The Rink family had never been on a family vacation until this trip where they visited Yellowstone National Park and went on a helicopter ride and saw Old Faithful. They also stopped at Virginia City, panned for gems, rode horses, fished and spent quality family time together in Montana’s great outdoors.
Heidi and Leroy were able to attend and speak at the 2020 Big Hearts Banquet. There was not a dry eye in the room. Brady and Billy were not able to make it as Brady was in quarantine during that time.
“Our family is beyond blessed for the amazing trip Big Hearts provided us. For one week, our family was full of smiles as we forgot about the rollercoaster life of the cancer world. This trip recharged us and made us realize we CAN keep going. We gained a relationship that will last a lifetime with the Big Hearts Family!” ~ Heidi Rink
