The Gift From Gunner foundation is established in the name of Gunner Shultz. He was diagnosed when he was five with a brain tumor, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, cancer. Unfortunately, he did not make it.
He died at the age of six on May 9, 2007 at 3:30 am.
We were blessed with great support from our community, friends, neighbors and many others. Their support helped us pay bills, and it allowed us to take one last family vacation together. In this respect we are trying to give to others what was given to us, more time to spend with their child without the worries of medical bills and money.
Now with the support from many neighbors and friends, we have set up this foundation to help assist other families with children who suffer from life threatening condition(s).
Children who can receive a Gift from Gunner must meet certain medical requirements and must be 18 years-old or younger.
