KNOX OUT CHILDHOOD CANCER RUN/WALK:
Knox Lewis was born on September 10, 2011. At just 7 months of age, his mother found a lump on his bottom during a diaper change.
Knox's parents began fighting it...even taking their son back and forth to Houston for 7 weeks. Knox received radiation, but remained a sweet baby boy through all of it.
Just six months after being diagnosed, Knox Lewis lost his battle at the age of one.
His family wants their son to be remembered and are giving back to others.
