In 2016 at a Northwest Sarcoma Foundation event, the Chitwood's received a nice bottle of wine with Bretton's story and picture on the bottle. A promise that night to open the bottle when Bretton turned 21. That day arrived earlier in July 2021. Bretton's family shared this update:
Bretton now lives in Georgia but still visits family in the Bellingham, WA area. He is doing wonderful, he will be a junior at Kennesaw State University this fall, he is working to become a high school teacher and focus on Special Education. Most of all, he is osteosarcoma cancer-free and doing wonderful!
