For every car that drives by parade for boy battling cancer, he and his mom will donate to nonprofits

Saturday is a very special day for 7-year-old Desmond as the WNY community will be driving by in a parade to wish him happy birthday. Desmond has been battling leukemia for the past year and his mom, Meghan, wants to make sure it’s a special one! She says birthdays are a big deal in their family. Des’s will be no exception, even during a pandemic.

But now Des and his mom want to give back, too. For every car that drives by the parade for Des, they will donate to pediatric cancer organizations that directly work to help children battling the terrible disease that is cancer.

The organizations they will be helping are:

Make-A-Wish WNY

Courage of Carly

PUNT Foundation 

Camp Good Days 

Desmond’s parade will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 23 at Green Lake Park, 200 N. Lake Drive in Orchard Park. Line up will begin at 12:40 at the Village Library parking lot. For more information, you can call or text Meghan at 917-538-3493 or visit the event on Facebook: https://facebook.com/events/s/desmonds-7th-birthday-car-para/520478465299974/?ti=icl
