On the afternoon of September 7, 2004 the Holbrooks were told Reece, their 2 year old son had cancer…leukemia. Reece was immediately admitted to UNC Children’s Hospital where they would spend the next 7 days. Reece had a port surgically placed in his chest, had a spinal tap and bone marrow aspiration and began chemotherapy. They were told Reece would take chemotherapy for the next 3 years and 2 months. On November 13, 2007 Reece finished treatments and was considered in remission. Reece is now a healthy teenager who won his battle against leukemia and goes once a year for a routine check-up.
In 2012, Chad and Jenn Holbrook established the Reece Holbrook Win Anyway Foundation. The foundation is a tax exempt nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to kids and their fight against cancer and other terminal illnesses. The foundation provides support for seriously ill children and their families, the facilities that treat them and other charitable causes.
