In April of 2005, Cindy and Tony Stanley were devastated by the news that their son, Michael, had cancer. After surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and over 100 days in the hospital, Michael was officially in remission. The Stanley family partnered with The Community Foundation to help ensure there are always funds to support the Child Life Services at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. These services were a godsend to Michael and his family, and they want to do what they can to ensure others confronting ill health receive similar help.
