GAINESVILLE, FLA. – Leading custom promotional products company, CustomCenter.com, announced today that non-profit organization, Sheridan’s Sunshine Foundation, is the grand prize winner of its Cancer Awareness “Share Your Story” Giveaway.
As the grand prize recipient, Sheridan’s Sunshine Foundation received 200 customized silicone wristbands from Custom Center to help with the organization’s efforts to raise awareness for its cause and the vital work they are doing to help raise money for childhood cancer research.
To enter Custom Center’s Cancer Awareness giveaway, non-profit organizations were asked to share their story on what they do to support the cause. Sheridan’s Sunshine Foundation’s winning entry was submitted by Jim and Melinda Bautista, the parents of Sheridan Bautista, the organization’s eight-year-old founder who battled osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer.
Sheridan’s story is truly inspiring and one that Custom Center could not be more proud to share. After undergoing a successful femur transplant surgery, Sheridan was determined to help other kids who were battling cancer and created the Sheridan’s Sunshine Foundation. Her work for childhood cancer did not go unnoticed as the Children’s Miracle Network named Sheridan a “Miracle kid,” and her encouraging story was shared on billboards throughout The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center. Sheridan also formed a team for the Oklahoma City CureSearch Walk, raising $7,000 at the event to be used for cancer research. Nine months after her initial diagnosis, the cancer returned and Sheridan lost her battle. Eager to keep her dream alive, Sheridan’s parents and supporters continue to run Sheridan’s Sunshine Organization to help raise funds for cancer research and support other children who are fighting the disease by the work of the foundation.
“It is our hope that this foundation evolves into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across Oklahoma and the nation carrying on Sheridan’s legacy of giving and of hope,” said Jim and Melinda Bautista. “The bracelets that we received from Custom Center will help us to promote awareness of childhood cancer and will be used at our fundraisers as a reminder of the thousands of childhood cancer warriors like Sheridan who battle these diseases everyday. ”
