What A Night!

Saturday was a beautiful evening FULL of blessings. The love and support in one room was just incredible. The event was a great success and would not have been possible without YOU! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Through your generous donations and a $25K match from Giving Hope World Wide, we raised over an astonishing $100,000.00 for the foundation! These amazing gifts will go towards improving the lives of children diagnosed with Lysosomal Storage Disorders and provide hope by accelerating the discovery and development of treatment options.  We will share updates at WylderNation.org on how the funds how your funds are making a difference, as they begin to get dispersed.

Thank you to all who joined us in this incredible evening.  Especially Wylder Nation sponsors, the increible host Mitch, one hilarious auctioneer, to Ernest and Lisa and the WARRIOR mommas Chelsea, Eileen and Courtney.  We love you all so much.  Ps.  To all of you who wanted to snuggle and love on Koa and didn’t get the chance … so so sorry.  The happiest baby in the world decided to have his alter ego come out and he did not enjoy the sound of clapping or his dad’s voice on the loud speaker (tee hee).  All is well that ends well though.  He looked darling in his outfit and was all smiles walking back up the hotel room at midnight!  ha!  

I wanted to take baby vesper home!

As you know we are determined to do what it takes to connect the people and resources that hold the key to treatment options.  Saturday night was proof that we are on the right path … together!

Thank you Wylder, we felt you guiding us the whole way.  We will see you in our dreams littles.  We love and miss you. xoxo

    Oh Shannon, it was a magical night and I am so proud and happy to have been there. Getting to meet you, Chelsea, Eileen, Chelsea’s parents, Koa, Vesper, your Mom, Steven, Phil, Courtney, Justin, Ernest, LIsa and so many others was just incredible. I was just messaging with Ashtyn’s mom and we are planning to attend together next year. The whole event was beautifully done – an evening of laughter, tears and inspiration. The generosity of those folks is awe-inspring and the spirit of love and determination that permeated the room was tangible. Thank you and Steven for bringing us all together and inspiring each of us to Live Like a Warrior! xoxoxo

    PS – I may have to come back to just to spend time with your Mom! She is a RIOT!

      It was so wonderful to finally meet you in person Cathy. I am so excited to hear all the buzz and excitement about next year already!! This means change is coming for this community. It really was a beautiful night and we are just over the moon that it turned out the way it did. I will very much look forward to seeing you and Ashtyn’s mom next year. PS. My mom is a blast! Glad you got to hang with her :)

  3. I agree!!! we need a picture with Courtney!! I don’t think we got one though?! I guess we will all just have to go again next year:) Seriously, that was one of the most amazing nights of my life, I felt so honored to be there. The only thing that would have made it better was if Jarrett and Brett could have come!! You and Steven did an AMAZING job honoring Wylder and our babies and putting on a beautiful and successful event!!! love you guys!

    • Mommy and Daddy says:

      I think we did get one, check your mommas phone … I think she might have it captive! It just would not have been right without you there Chels, I am so glad you and Vesper made it. It is impossibly hard to be without our littles, but I am in awe of how our small community is growing HUGE for change! Next year, the boy will have to come too and there will be big things to report for NPA. Thank you Chels. We love you. xoxo
