(Savannah pediatricians) How two parents’ strength fuels a special Richmond Hill 5K

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

southcoast health pediatrics dr. webb

Need an example of strength and resilience?

You’ll find it in the parents featured on the SouthCoast Health Web site posted entitled SouthCoast Pediatrician and Wife Raise Awareness for Childhood Cancer.

The post spotlights SouthCoast Health pediatrician Dr. William Webb and wife Danielle, a clinical pediatric dietitian at Memorial Health, who are continuing to fight for childhood cancer research after the death of their son four years ago. Three-year-old William Webb II of Savannah faced a rare form of childhood cancer, stage IV neuroblastoma, with remarkable spirit.

“He would want us to get out there and improve the situation for others,” Dr. Webb says in the post.

William’s parents have created the nonprofit Warriors for William Foundation to raise money for childhood cancer research. The foundation’s logo is an outline of a boy in a superhero costume, a direct nod to their son.

The Warriors for William Foundation hosts fundraising events including the Warriors for William 5K. The sixth annual race returns Oct. 28 2018 at J.F. Gregory Park in Richmond Hill.

Learn more about William’s and his parents’ perseverance as well as you can get involved in Warriors for William Foundation or
