Helping Kids With Cancer – Team Dayton
Our mission is to help Kids With Cancer and that gives us the amazing privilege of meeting some very special families and kids.
Our newest sock name and design has a very special meaning. The Mak dayton was named after a special little boy name Dayton Nielsen who recently lost his battle with cancer. You can see his full story here, TEAM DAYTON Facebook Page
We personally got to know Dayton and he touched the lives of anyone that knew him. To honor Dayton, Mak Soks will be donating proceeds from every pair of dayton’s sold, from now until the end of the year, to the Nielsen family to help pay for funeral and medical expenses. Get the mak dayton’s here
Dayton and his wonderful family embody strength and courage and are the reason we strive to help families and children fighting cancer.
The Story of Dayton and how Team Dayton was created.
Dayton Lee Nielsen was born on June 17, 2010 to Bryce and Trudy Nielsen. He has an older brother, Braxton 15, and an older sister Brooklyn 8. Dayton is the apple or our eye. He is very outgoing, energetic, and loves to be outdoors. His favorite things are Mickey Mouse, Lightning McQueen, monster trucks, camping, riding ATV’s, mac & cheese, pancakes, and of course candy.
In March of 2013 Dayton began to have abdominal pain and constipation. Soon following Dayton lost his appetite, wouldn’t sleep at night, and his personality had completely changed. He wasn’t the energetic, playful little boy that we all knew and loved. At his first doctors appointment he was diagnosed with IBS. Sadly all his symptoms continued and even began to worsen. He was then taken for a second opinion where he was referred to Primary Children’s Medical Center. On May 17, 2013 Dayton was diagnosed with a Neuroblastoma tumor in his abdomen. His cancer is stage 4, high risk, which means he has a very long road ahead of him. He is a fighter and will give this tumor a run for it.
