The Mayo Clinic
Warrior Wagons have been rolling around Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, since April of 2017. This was the first hospital to partner with Warrior Wagons and we enjoy a strong connection with staff today.
Our Mayo Branch Coordinators, Martjin and Katy Bos, are the parents of Christian, a Warrior who received a Wagon in 2018. Together with the help of their older sons Ryan and Jax, this family of five manages supplies, assembles Warrior Wagons, and delivers them to staff at St Mary’s for distribution to new families. The family also handles all local donations to Warrior Wagons.
Children’s Hospital of Minnesota
Children’s Hospital of Minnesota was the second hospital to partner with Warrior Wagons in January of 2019. Our Twin Cities branch is busy! We are happy to have our program at this hospital, as many families travel between Mayo and Children’s for treatment.
Branch Coordinators Kelly and Meagan Osborne have a son, Chance, who successfully completed treatment for childhood cancer. They are thankful to be able to help fellow Warrior families through Warrior Wagons. Their family manages supplies, assembles Warrior Wagons, and brings them to staff at Children’s for distribution to families. Any local donations are handled by the Osborne family.
Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago
Newly diagnosed children and families have been given a Warrior Wagon at the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago since the summer of 2019. This Downtown Chicago hospital is our newest branch, but Warrior Wagons have quickly become a part of the environment at Lurie.
Jeff and Kayleigh Borchardt serve as Branch Coordinators for Lurie’s. Their big hearts couldn’t help but be a part of Warrior Wagons and serve families affected by childhood cancer. They manage supplies, assemble Warrior Wagons, and make the drive downtown to take them to staff for distribution. All local donations are handled by the Borchardts in Naperville.
