Walker Waring Beery, a 9-year-old boy has passed away after a 2 years long battle against pediatric brain cancer. Walker passed away at a tender age on September 4, 2021.
Walker was born on February 18, 2012, to his parent Taylor and Angel Beery in New Orleans. He attended Trinity Episcopal School where he channeled his limitless energy into dreams of becoming a scientist and cherished moments with friends and teachers.
Beery was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma (a pediatric brain cancer) at the age of 7. Despite having such sickness at a very tender age, Walker faced his disease with gratitude, courage, and love.
Walker’s approach to cancer helped him overcome his fears, maintain his strength through challenging treatments and become an inspiration to all who knew him.
Walker’s “FriYay” shirt, Zion Williamson flexes and dance moves brightened otherwise dreary treatment waiting rooms and were favorites of patients and healthcare providers, alike.
In the last year of his life, Walker established a foundation called Kids Join the Fight to provide a cure for pediatric brain cancer and care for families facing this terrible disease.
From Walker’s perspective, Kids Join the Fight focuses on empowering children to leverage their creative superpowers to raise money for the foundation’s Cure and Care mission.
An Open-Air Celebration of Life will be held at the Louisiana Children’s Museum, located at 15 Henry Thomas Drive in New Orleans, at 4:00 pm on September 18, 2021.
The family encourages all who knew Walker to attend and to share memories and celebrate Walker’s beautiful life.
