Meet August CCA Hero – Sol

Ray of Sunshine

Sol is the perfect name for this two-year-old ray of sunshine. Sol loves petting farm animals, pretending to be a dinosaur, blowing bubbles with her Chemo Pal, Emily, and her rubber boots. “She’s all about those boots”, laughed her mom, Ruth. “She even sleeps in them!”

Music Matters

Sol especially loves music, something that’s brought her tremendous joy during her treatments for high-risk stage IV neuroblastoma at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. “The MyMusicRx team has made all the difference,” said Ruth. “It gives her the chance to sing, play, and dance again.”

Sol has been through a lot since her diagnosis, including multiple rounds of chemo, radiation, and a bone marrow transplant. However, everyone around her marvels at her courage and good humor.

“The strength of her spirit is unmatched,” said her dad, Andy. “Even after a tough procedure, she’ll give us a smile and a high five.”

Live for What’s Important

“Sol has taught us to live for what’s important and embrace what we have right now,” added Ruth. “She doesn’t dwell—she only remembers the fun and important things.”

With Sol’s perpetually sunny outlook, it seems only fitting that her favorite song is “Best Day of My Life” by the band American Authors. Because the way Sol sees it, every day truly is the best day of her life.

At PDX Property Group we are active members of the community in which we live, work, and play.  Within our organization that means that means are agents, our operations team, our families, and our clients actively give back to the community.  Over the last decade we have supported countless local and national non-profit organizations.  These range from support for the homeless in our city, the hungry in our neighborhoods, and the children in our communities .  This support ranges from physical work, financial support, professional advice, membership on boards, and hosting many fundraisers in support of these organizations.  
 
This year PDX Property Group has partnered with the Children’s Cancer Association (CCA), and organization that is very close to our hearts…as it has been very close to our home.  
Under the leadership of current CCA board member and cancer survivor John Powers, every member of PDX Property Group has stepped into action and involvement with this organization of hope, help, and joy.  This year PDX Property Group has committed to making a financial contribution on behalf of EVERY one of the families we help either buy, sell, or invest at time of closing.  We have also partnered in being the lead sponsor of the CCA Gala, one of the largest fund raising nights in the city of Portland.
