In September 2016, KIDSgala hosted a surprise birthday Party for Gabriel Richard at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan. Gabriel’s celebration was fun filled with unlimited LEGOLAND rides, creative workshops, viewing dozens of Metro Detroit’s iconic landmarks made form LEGO bricks, enjoyed a 4D LEGO movie in the cinema and a photo booth. Gabriel’s guests had dinner, birthday cake and took home fun goodie bags.
Gabriel was diagnosed in March, 2016 with a stage two rare brain tumor. Pilomyxoid Astrocytoma is an intrusive mass in the brain. Gabriel has undergone neurosurgery to reduce the size of the tumor followed by 74 weeks of chemotherapy. The tumor then began to grow back and required Gabriel to have a second surgery in August 2016 to reduce the size again. His parents are amazed that Gabriel (“Gabriel the Brave”) has endured two surgeries, countless tests and needle pokes all with a tremendous amount of bravery and smiles.
