I had the privilege of being Eli's Cub Scout Den leader last year. The Cub Scouts and I were devastated when we heard about Eli’s diagnosis. The Cub Scouts and I wanted to do something to show our support for him and let him know we were praying for him to get better. I made badges for the scouts to wear to all scout activities, we made a large poster to be signed by everyone in ABS Pack 25, and we put a goody basket together with all kinds of scout activities to keep him busy at St. Jude.

Tiger badge (just a couple of weeks before his diagnosis).

Eli had only been out of one of his surgeries a day, so he
couldn't move his neck or sit up very well.
