2018 growth trend

sand digger w Hunter Wise

Spirit of the Growler Kid–   Growler supported Hunter Wise in 2018.   Hunter just turned 12 in October. Hunters first brain surgery was May 2015 to remove a tumor/cyst.   He had another brain surgery one week later due to complications.  His family learned he has a rare choriocarcinoma and a Germinoma.  When he was released from the hospital he had double vision, Diabetes Insipidus, an inability to regulate his internal thermostat, headaches, nausea, and constant fatigue with the least little bit of activity. Since then Hunter has gone through 2 more brain surgeries, spinal tap and chemotherapy.   He’s a real fighter.   Growler is proud to honor him in 2018 and support his family.   A portion of the Growler proceeds will be given to the family to help support his medical bills.   Read More about Hunter      >>  Hunter’s Story
