A Brave Little Boy in Vinton
SERVPRO of DeRidder, Leesville, & Vinton started a GoFundMe Campaign for a little boy named Drake to make his Christmas wish come true!! On March 12, 2018, Drake, now 8, was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma , or DIPG. It's the most deadly form of childhood cancer, with no known cure. Drake is from Vinton, LA and like any good ol' country boy he likes to fish, hunt, be outdoors, and loves LSU Football!! We discovered Drake after reading a news story about his wish to receive 190 Christmas cards in the mail. We asked for everyone's help to fulfill one of Drake's biggest wishes..to attend a LSU game. Our goal was set at $10,000 and with all of the love and support that flowed in from people all over the United States we were able to send Drake, along with his Mom, Dad, & 2 Brothers to the Fiesta Bowl in Arizona on New Year's Day. He got to watch his beloved LSU Tigers play against the UCF Knights. Drake and his family had so many adventures while in Arizona and made so many lasting memories. We at the office are so touched by Drake and pray for a miracle.
