Birthday party for a cancer patient
5:30pm to 6:30pm
Home venue: Chicago (Pilsen)

This was a surprise birthday party for a 22-year-old teenage boy that was getting ready to start his chemo therapy. He and his siblings are huge Star Wars fans and his sister arranged for us to come out and surprise him in his home surrounded by his friends and family. He was speechless as we made our appearance. His family was so appreciative of our visit they asked us to stay and have dinner with them. My wife even though she is not a member of the 501st asked if she could come along I put her in my Tusken Raider and for the first time I think she got to see why I do this is much is possible and it has moved her to want to get an approval costume so she can Troop along with me in the future. There were only three of us but we a large impact on this family.
