Moses Haley

This page is dedicated to our brave Moses, who lost his battle with rhabdomyosarcoma on July 30, 2011. When Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S. was formed by former Blowing Rock School Secretary Trish Kohlasch, a young Pre-Kindergarten student and his family presented a serious need for funds, love and some fun for young Moses. Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S., the school family and numerous local businesses worked to help Moses and his family during that time.

During 2010 and 2011, Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S. planned a series of fundraising  events for Moses, a rising Pre Kindergarten student  with rhabdomyosarcoma, a very aggressive, and, in his  case, inoperable cancer.
