Hunter Nelson

The dream for a cure lives on...

Hunter, your charming innocence and spirited determination in the face of adversity

inspired us all to seek better answers.

Your absence leaves us saddened and bereft.

Nevertheless, we commit ourselves to the path that lies before us,

for the sake of all children with Sturge-Weber syndrome.

We will not forget you.
