Cheyenne DeVelasco passed from this life on Sunday August 20th, 2017. She will surely rest peacefully knowing she was loved deeply, she loved greatly and gave of herself wholeheartedly until the very end of her life.
She lived the life of a true superhero - having faced great adversity, she used her considerable powers for good, for all.
Weeks before Chey passed away, when breathing was difficult, and she had every right to not engage with others, she courageously shared her story with MIB Agents and their video production team. Her story, strength, faith and love will be shared with the world. More than a Warrior, Chey showed us all how to battle adversity with courage, hope and faith.
Chey was an important part of MIB Agents from the start. She was a sustaining donor, sending a donation every month to help other kids and young adults suffering from her same disease, osteosarcoma. Her heartfelt desire was to Make It Better so that no other child should have to suffer as she did.
Cheyenne's asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name to Make It Better for others still fighting, and yet to fight osteosarcoma. We are a 100% volunteer, nationwide nonprofit organization. Our singular mission is to provide direct support to kids with this disease as well as fund meaningful research to improve outcomes for osteosarcoma.
The Mission of M.I.B. Agents is to Make It Better for children with osteosarcoma, bone cancer. With love and hope, M.I.B. Agents:
- Pairs a child in treatment with a survivor of their same cancer including through MiB Gamer Agents.
- Provides items of comfort and entertainment (iPads, iTunes Cards, Noise Cancelling Headphones) for their treatment and recovery
- Arranges end-of-life experiences and/or comfort for the child when options for treatment have been exhausted and they are on home hospice care.
- Raises funds and awareness to increase research for better treatments and outcomes for those with osteosarcoma, including through the first osteosarcoma conference FACTOR and through our annual $100,000 funding initiative, OutSmarting Osteosarcoma.
M.I.B. Agents makes it better by helping to increase the quality of comfort and life for kids with osteosarcoma with the help of our community of dedicated and passionate Agents.
We are committed to Making it Better for adolescents and young adults with bone cancer (osteosarcoma). Our dedicated team pays no salaries, so your donation has a profound and direct effect on our missions.
