Christien Mikhail Quiles Osteosarcoma Research Fund

Christien

Christien Mikhail Quiles  was an incredible young man who was filled with love and a passion for life and people.  Simply put he was an absolute joy to be around, motivating everyone he came in contact with.   He loved his family,  children, the beauty of nature, animals and Pokémon and sought to enrich the lives of others in any way he possibly could. Amongst all the wonderful nouns that can be used to describe Christien, the best is that he was a cultivator.  He cultivated friendships and relationships. He gathered the strength to get involved so others wouldn’t have to feel  or experience what he did and was determined it had to be something where others would benefit.  

Christien was a key factor to the establishment of the Teen Room at Scott and White McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple, Texas.  He was the co-President of the McLane Children’s Hospital Teen Advisory Board advocating for the needs of children who are patients of McLane Children’s Hospital.  He was quite the philanthropist… individually raising thousands of dollars to purchase medical equipment for sick children through EXTRALIFE.  

On 27 April 2016 Christien was honored as one of  Central Texas’s Incredible Kids.  He was recognized for his  generosity, resilience and inspiring commitment and contributions to other patients and the Teen Advisory Board of McLane Children’s Hospital.  He was grateful for the honor and privilege to be recognized, but he remained humble.  Whenever he was other patients heard Christien was in the hospital they would run towards him and want to spend time with him.   Irregardless of what was going on with him Christien would smile and always give his attention to them.   As his mom I would grin and say… I have an Incredible Kid!

I want to honor Christien’s legacy by continuing the fight to help others through raising funds for the research and treatment of Ostesarcoma!  There needs to be a change because the current treatment is NOT ENOUGH!
