Our February 9 Run to Fight Superhero is Deshawn! Deshawn is a quiet young man, who at 16 years old loves sports and video games. He was thrilled with the Patriots win over the Seahawks for the Superbowl and would love to see the Cardinals earn the right to play one of these years!
Deshawn was diagnosed in April of 2014 with a condition that although it is not specifically cancer, it is treated with chemotherapy and radiation. He is the oldest of 6 and smiles when asked the names of his siblings. He quietly and confidently replies: Dashawn, Desrena, Dayniesha, Diontay, and Dajinique! Go Deshawn!!
