Mavricks Army started as a support/prayer group for our son, Mavrick Russell Daniels when he was diagnosed with Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma in February 2018. Through his 2 years treatment, relapses, travel, studies and trial drugs this page became a huge support for us. We raised money to help with travel and lodging, people sent Mavrick cards and presents. It was an amazing thing for us.
Since Mavricks passing in February this year, the page and his Instagram (@abustoheaven) have been used for spreading awareness, #livingformavrick posts, and raising funds for Rhabdo research. We’ve also done a birthday donation in honor of Mav. We collected toys the month of his birthday, October and brought them to his hospital on his birthday. We entered a contest that we won and all proceeds went to St. Baldricks. For Christmas our plan is to do a parent drive for the moms and dads in the hospital with their babies and raise money again for St. Baldricks or UNC children’s cancer research.
