Clayton was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in December 2013. He suffered greatly from this disease and passed away in August 2016 after exhausting all treatment options. His heartfelt wish was that no one else should suffer as he had. Clayton asked that donations be made to the most promising osteosarcoma research happening now, a beautiful testament to how kind and thoughtful he was. As the Greek Proverb says, “A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.” Clayton didn’t get the chance to grow old, but he wanted us to help ensure that other kids with this disease do get the chance to survive this aggressive pediatric cancer. Thank you for honoring Clayton’s memory and charitable spirit.
