US Army Makes 10 Year Old Cancer Patient An Honorary Soldier

By March 9, 2011

Follow me on:

I was so touched when I read about a young boy who was made an honorary soldier by the U.S. Army last week. 10 year old Brennan Daigle suffers from embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare type of cancer in which muscle tumors attach themselves to the bones. He has been fighting the disease since 2009 and was informed that all treatment methods have been exhausted. Brennan has only weeks to live.

When the Army heard about Brennan's story and his love for the Army, they planned a ceremony to honor the boy's courage. With the help of a charity organization, Brennan was inducted as an honorary member of the Army last weekend for his birthday. Over 40 soldiers from Fort Polk attended to show their support for the Army's newest soldier.

The bravery of pediatric cancer patients is unlike any other. Brennan is just one of thousands of children who courageously face cancer each day. These children are amazing; they endure more than any person should ever have to in their lifetime. I love that the U.S. Army made Brennan's dream come true.

Brennan's family has set up a Facebook page to support him. Visit Brennan's Brigade on Facebook to show your support for this courageous young man and his family!
