Parents, Friends to Walk in Honor of Henry Cermak

The Island Packet, a newspaper published in Hilton Head, SC, just featured an inspiring article about the family of Henry Cermak.  Henry died at the age of 12 two years ago this month, after a valiant battle with a brain tumor.

Henry’s parents, Terry and Cynthia Cermak, keep his memory alive through childhood cancer events and fundraisers.  They will travel to Atlanta to participate in William’s Walk & Run this weekend. 

They will be accompanied by at least 19 friends and family members at the event this weekend.  Amy B.  Bredeson, reporter with the Island Packet, writes “The Cermaks named their team “Henry’s 1-Ups,” inspired by their son’s love for everything Nintendo. In many video games, collecting a 1-up gives the player an extra life.”
