Christopher Urry welcomed his new baby brother to the world on May 8, 2003. He was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma on May 9, 2003. Only three months later his mother, Michelle, learned that he had a secondary diagnosis of Cerebella Mutism, a rare syndrome caused by the surgical manipulation Christopher had to undergo. This secondary condition would cause a loss of speech and voluntary movements that would require many years of therapy and treatment to overcome. "Our whole world was so dark and exhausting. It was hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel. Then along came this extraordinary group of people, The Friendship Foundation, who work so hard to make little kids feel special and cared for. It was hard to understand, comprehend or maybe believe is a better word, that something really positive was happening in my son's world again". This is what the Friendship Foundation is all about. We want to be that light at the end of a tunnel. We want to help make these children feel special and cared for . one child at a time. We want to help these families believe again.
