When Rowan Windham first spotted collection bins for the “End Summer Hunger Cereal Drive” at Methodist Children’s Hospital, he did not let his post-surgery recovery, or the walls of his hospital room, stop him from donating almost 4,000 cereal boxes.

By the age of 10, Rowan had spent one-third of his life battling Shwachman-Diamond syndrome, with more than 1,000 hospital days and 100 surgeries. Yet he always strived to help others and make the good in situations where it was hard to see any.

He passed away in December 2016.

The Rowan Windham Memorial Cereal Drive is moving on to its fourth year of giving to children in the community by helping end summer hunger. The cereal drive will be from May 31 to June 6 at BioBridge Global as one of the numerous donation sites in San Antonio and New Braunfels.
