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 third branch, and 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.

Minnesota Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital
Minnesota Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital began giving out Warrior Wagons in December of 2022. This hospital sees patients from both Mayo and Children’s Minnesota at various stages of treatment, and we are happy to include them in our Warrior Wagon family.
Barb Trotz is our Branch Coordinator for this fourth branch of Warrior Wagons at M Health. She is the Inpatient Oncology Nurse Coordinator at the hospital, which gives her first-hand experience with how difficult the childhood cancer journey can be. That knowledge will keep her motivated as she handles supplies, assembles Warrior Wagons, and brings them in to her colleagues in Child Life for distribution. Any donations for the Minnesota Health Fairview hospital will be handled by Barb.

In the fall of 2023, Warrior Wagons began going out to families in Milwaukee at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. We are excited to have a branch in Wisconsin, which is the third state added to the Warrior Wagons community.
Eric and Amanda Uting serve as our local coordinators in Milwaukee. Their son, Samuel, received a Warrior Wagon at Mayo Clinic during his journey with childhood cancer. The family, including siblings Zoe and Noah, is excited to be helping fellow cancer families navigate treatment with a Warrior Wagon. And we are excited to have them on our team! The Uting family manages supplies and the distribution of Warrior Wagons, as well as field any donations from the local Wisconsin area.
