Scout Losing Battle with Cancer

Recommended Posts

Noah Spivey, 17 yr old Life Scout stated hospice care this week. The troop and the community completed his Eagle project for Noah this past weekend. A fund has been started to help pay uniform, summer camp and assorted other scout related costs for scouts in need as his request. The local news media has two stories on the lad. If you would be interested in donating to the Noah Fund, please follow the bottom link. The first three links are new media coverage of Noah from this week.

Thank you for posting this, resqman. For a young person like this to suffer a fate like this is a terrible tragedy and I've seen it several times in the past few years. It is heartbreaking on one hand and humbling to see their spirit fighting all the way on the other hand. Even at this hour he is reaching out in service to others. Hand Salute!

Like many projects this was driven by one adult leader. He found reasons to visit Noah during long bouts of treatment that kept him away from the troop. Blake Phillips contacted the media and council to make things happen. Noah has been battling cancer for years but when it became apparent that Noah would likely pass within weeks, Blake stepped up and made things happen.

 

While the council sent a representative to the ceremony, it was mainly due to Blake's efforts to be a good friend to an ailing boy that made things happen in under a weeks time.

 

If you see a need in your area, you can make it happen regardless of District or Council participation.

The fund link won't work for me. Anyone else tried it successfully?
