Thank you for joining Ben and his family in their fight against cancer.
Four-year-old Benjamin Sauer of Clarence, New York was always dressed in blue. Not only because it was his favorite color, but his mom used it to help others tell him apart from his twin brother, Jack.
Typical boys, they love spending their time outdoors; collecting bugs, capturing frogs, and teaching their younger sister, Megan, how to do the same. But in early February of this year, Ben was diagnosed with the unthinkable: Stage IV Glioblastoma, a malignant and aggressive brain tumor. After additional testing, doctors began--but soon discontinued--chemo and radiation treatments as the tumor tripled in size in just a few weeks. Ben was sent home, the stage set for a miracle.
Thankfully, Ben was born into a family of profound Christian faith so when he took his first breath in heaven on May 13th, hope was not lost. In fact, it seems only to have grown brighter. This website was created to allow the world an opportunity to connect and show support to the family in going blue4ben. It has quickly grown into an ongoing invitation to join in the inspirational journey of faith. The faith that continues to hold up Ben's family in their loss--and remind us that Ben's life has made a significant difference in each of ours.
The Blue4Ben campaign is a heartwarming community response to help support Ben's current and future medical expenses in addition to other financial needs of the family. It is a personal benefit to help the Sauer family through this challenge of handling the critical illness of their child.
At a future point in time, the Sauers will be making donations to Roswell Park, Make A Wish, and other WNY children's charities that support children like Ben. These gifts will be made in Ben’s honor.
