Friends and family will gather on Saturday, March 31, to celebrate the life of Travis Britt. The 19-year-old was initially diagnosed with Ewing's Syndrome (a form of bone cancer) in June of 2005, and gained nationwide attention with his upbeat attitude and determination to beat the disease. In April of 2006 he was told he was in remission, but the cancer returned only six weeks later. Initially given only three to six months to live, Travis held on for another ten months.Flowers and donations can be sent to the Travis Britt Foundation at Children's Hospital, P.O. Box 50020, Seattle, 98245.
