At the age of two, Weston was diagnosed with a rare, high-risk, and aggressive form of cancer called Neuroblastoma.
In 2018, Weston’s mother Kristin took her son in for a routine checkup, where she mentioned her concern over a small bump on Weston’s head. The doctor decided to do a biopsy and it was discovered that the bump was a metastasized tumor on his skull. What began as a simple doctor’s visit, became a day no parent should have to face.
After the initial scans, the original tumor was located on his pelvis and traces of the cancer were found on his bones throughout his body. Weston’s journey now consists of several intense rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, surgery, stem cell transplants, and immunotherapy over the next couple years.
Weston and his parents are good friends of the Vetter Family, founders and owners of Tessemae’s. So, when they shared how much Weston loves Tessemae’s Creamy Ranch with a touching story about how it’s the only thing he’ll eat and how he loves to eat it straight from a bowl with a spoon, the Vetters knew they had to help. “This diagnosis has been so tough on Weston and his family, and the treatments are unimaginably expensive, so seeing how much joy our ranch brought this little guy, we wanted to find a way to help” said Greg Vetter.
In honor of Weston’s favorite food, every Wednesday, deemed #Wednesdays4Weston, Tessemae’s donated a portion of the proceeds from every bottle of Creamy Ranch dressing sold on Tessemaes.com to help Weston on his road to a cure! After 6 months we've donated thousands of dollars to help our friend.
