I cannot look at a red Radio Flyer wagon without smiling !
Our son was diagnosed with brain cancer at age two. Between the tumor, and chemo he became immobile . One day he saw a red Radio Flyer wagon and wanted a ride. He became so happy when we gave him a ride at the children's hospital we were in. The wagon was the only place he wanted to be for a few months . Not only did this bring such joy to our son during treatment, but it also served many practical uses such as moving our belongings to one floor from another in the hospital, when we would get transferred, but it also helped up take our belongings to and from our vehicle with each hospital stay. Some people may look at a red wagon and think nothing of it , to me, it is a full of special memories , and this is why I cannot look at a red Radio Flyer wagon without smiling .

"Hi! Well, let's see.. where do I start? I'm Hanah Roberts. I'm 19 and I currently live in Belton, Texas. I'm originally from a little town in Washington. I have an amazing 7 month old son named Mason. Being so young, we do struggle with money, but we make it work! However, This would be so helpful if we win!! Mason's dad works almost 24-7 and we rarely have time for family. But again we make it work... OK! So I was born August 11, 1994, weighting 9 pounds 9 oz. in Vancouver, Washington. When I was born into this crazy world, I had Hip Dysplasia. It is an abnormal formation of the hip socket. So I got the surgery and got the cute little pink casts on my legs. So being 9 pounds and with casts, my mom decided to buy a little ol' red wagon for me so she can take me places with out having to carry me. Every where I went I was in this wagon, for years at that! The Little cherry red Radio Flyer wagon meant a lot to me for years. Even though I couldn't walk when I was little, it help me get around. So thank you so much! -Hanah Roberts"
When I was in 4th grade I wheeled around a Radio Flyer wagon in the neighborhood to collect cans for food drive.
When our kids were young, we enjoyed putting them in the radio flyer and taking walks around town. We stopped at elderly neighbors who were home bound to bring a little joy to them. Just the interaction with the kids brought them a lot of enjoyment. We'd also bring some groceries or home baked goods with us to share. They enjoyed the time but it also was great for us to be able to add a little sunshine to their day.
