Brenden made national headlines when he spread a little JOY to a customer in need while working at Whitey’s in Moline. Out of his own pocket, he bought a customer her ice cream after noticing she was very visibly upset, but not knowing why. A few days later, she shared that she had recently lost her husband. Brenden’s small act of kindness went VIRAL and not only touched her heart, but ours, and many many people’s across the country as well. But sadly, the story does not end there….In December, while prepping for the holidays, and still riding the high from his story going viral, they were given the life changing news that he was beginning his cancer battle. Cancer should never happen to ANYONE, let alone a young man who should be worried about prom dates, and homework, and football games instead of a chemo regimen, ports, infections, fevers, and hospital stays. We were stoked to provide this local hero with a check for $4000, some of which, went to a well deserved family vacation where they were able to forget about illness and hospitals, and focus on being a family. Brenden is currently cancer free!
