Dad, Blandon, remembers: “Christian ‘Lil Man’ Shaffer had just got his first dirt bike for Christmas and we had gone to a dirt bike track for his first time. After all dad’s lists of rules, do’s and don’ts we began to ride. As the day went on I noticed Christian getting way more comfortable and confident with his new bike. Then I noticed him studying a boy twice his size and few years older practicing a certain jump where we were riding. Before I could remind him there was ‘no getting air today’ he was off and gaining speed!! I screamed at the top of my lungs for him to stop, my mind was already made up he was going DOWN and I was preparing to pick up the pieces!! Well Christian landed it smooth like he had been doing it for years!! The boy was fearless and saw life as a challenge!”

Dad, Blandon, along with Mom, Amanda, grandparents Greg and Cherie, Jimmy and Nancy, and Uncle Garret and Aunt Tiffany want others to know Christian’s story“so people can see a face and story to our DIPG angel. People need to hear each and every one of our stories until our children quit dying.”
