NYC families are invited to celebrate the first birthday of Minty--an incredible child who is battling potentially terminal brain cancer. The fundraising birthday celebration will involve shutting down Minty’s entire block in Williamsburg for an outdoor concert and party.

The fair will feature a children’s music concert, healthy kid’s treats, art activities, a climbing gym, fire trucks, water sprinklers, and more. ALL of the proceeds from this event will go directly to Minty in order to help her fight a fight that she deserves to win.

Born in NYC in the early hours of a humid July 10 at 36 weeks, Minty weighed in at a modest 4 lbs 13oz. Minty has been diagnosed with anaplastic ependymoma. She started on the Headstart III protocol in October, which is 6 rounds of high-dose chemotherapy, ending in an autologous stem-cell rescue of leveled bone marrow. The aim is to avoid radiation in children under the age of 10 years. Read more about this story on Minty’s Blog -
