A Story of Love

From one family to another: we are all in this together.

Evan's Journey

When my son, Evan, was in the 10th grade, doctors found a tumor in his ear and nose. He had surgeries, radiation treatments, chemo and immunotherapies. Despite this he finished high school, studied Chemical Engineering at UC Berkeley as a Regents' Scholar, played piano and basketball, skateboarded and snowboarded, and made friends along the way.



He “gamaned” as his grandmother would say. That means persevered in Japanese. Throughout our challenges, many have shown us compassion. Nurses, doctors, medical personnel, churches, and complete strangers prayed for and supported Evan.

Paying it Forward

Their love has inspired me to do the same for others on their Cancer journey. I started LOVE, EVAN to give acts of service and remind others "Ganbatte (be your best), we're in this together."

                   -Love, Tracy Niizawa (Evan's Mom)



Brighten someone's day on their Cancer jouney.
