Bennett Younger

Make a donation in Bennett's honor.

Bennett is a courageous survivor. After his initial diagnosis and 10-hour neurosurgery, he was unable to walk or talk. After an initial round of chemotherapy, doctors discovered that his disease had spread widely throughout his Central Nervous System...

Fortunately, thanks to the amazing clinicians at Children’s Hospital in Washington, D.C., Bennett and his family had access to other options that were considered and ultimately successful. Once he regained his strength, Bennett started rebuilding all of his capabilities, a journey that continues to this day.
