Video: “It Felt Like a Great Big Hug” (Reef’s Story)

(Please subscribe to our YouTube channel!)

This video shares the story of Reef and his family… and Dragonfly. It was originally shown during Dragonfly’s 2018 Grand Gala and Night of Courage events. The Carneson’s were kind enough to speak at both events.

Originally from South Africa, the Carneson’s have been through so much trying to save their young son as he battles two cancers and complications from a bone marrow transplant. After relocating from Los Angeles to Cincinnati, OH, the family joined The Dragonfly Foundation and found “a big hug.”

“It was so amazing to feel part of a family.”

Please join us in sending good wishes to their family.
