Ciara, Russell Wilson, and the kids spread a bit of charity at the Suncadia Resort this past Monday (June 24). The celebrity family hosted the 2019 Wilson Celebrity Invitational at the resort, which benefitted the Strong Against Foundation.
Ciara performed at the charity event that brought out all of the courageous souls who have battled with and are currently winning the fight against cancer. One survivor especially impacted Ciara. “Rorick, you inspire us all,” the ‘Beauty Marks’ singer said of a 14-year-old survivor of brain cancer who was in his second year of remission.
“Rorick was diagnosed with Brain Cancer when he was 12, and is now cancer free at 14 years old,” Ciara told her Instagram fans. “It touches my heart to hear him talk about his scar from treatment, and the positivity he can see in it. I call it his Beauty Mark. Thanks for being a beacon of hope for us all, angel. We’re so proud of you!”
