BrendanÕs mother Christine Kearns (right) and aunt, Christine Murphy (left with son, William) also helped organize the benefit.
    Brendan Kearns' 350 closest friends and family came out to celebrate his birthday, and oh, what a celebration it was for this five-year-old! This party however, was not a typical birthday bash, but a fundraising benefit to help children living with cancer. For more than a year and a half, Brendan has been receiving treatment for leukemia at Winthrop-University Hospital's Cancer Center for Kids.

    The benefit raised $6,400 for Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids and also helped pay for the new Nintendo Fun Center, a mobile entertainment unit containing a TV monitor, VCR and Nintendo-64 game system.

    Marvin Tiger Foundation Donation Provides Children at Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids with Hours of Fun, Entertainment


    The children being treated at Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids are in for a big treat, thanks to a generous donation from the Marvin Tiger Foundation. Laptop computers, equipped with Internet access, will soon be available to the Center's patients. Computer-savvy youngsters will be able to email friends, stay in touch with teachers and keep up with school assignments, as well as have the capability to visit special web sites and chat rooms designed for children living with cancer.
