13-year old son of leukemia survivor starts movement to give relentless wristbands to cancer patients across America

January 28 00:33 2020

Floyd Korzan is 13-years old. He lives with his family in Mitchell, South Dakota, and attends the local middle school where he volunteers at the library and plays football. He likes to eat pizza, watch movies, and Snapchat his friends. Floyd’s a perfectly normal teenager, with one possible exception… he’s relentless!

Watching his father battle Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) — one of the most dreaded and deadliest diseases on earth — as the illness relapsed after chemotherapy, and then relapsed a second time, Floyd suffered though the anguish and anxiety that is typical of the children of cancer patients.

After riding an emotional rollercoaster and spending over half of his young life at his father’s bedside in the leukemia ward at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, the experience ultimately culminating with his dad beating the disease after undergoing a high-risk stem-cell transplant, Floyd was inspired to start the Relentless Pledge.

The Relentless Pledge https://relentlesspledge.org is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire people to live life to the limit, to dare, to dream big dreams and to be relentless in overcoming obstacles and facing challenges. People can visit the Relentless Pledge website https://relentlesspledge.org and take the pledge to be relentless in their own lives.

Every time someone goes online and takes the pledge to be relentless and supports the Relentless Pledge, the organization gives its relentless wristbands to cancer patients, people facing a health crisis or chronic condition, or to local heroes in communities all across America. The objective is to encourage and inspire people to have hope and courage, and to be relentless.

The Relentless Pledge has exploded in popularity, quickly becoming an inspirational movement spanning the globe and going viral on social media in only its first month of existence. The organization has had people take the Relentless Pledge and order its relentless wristbands from 46 different states, and across 4 different continents.

Commenting on his inspiration to start Relentless Pledge and the subsequent success of the organization, Floyd Korzan stated “I remember asking my dad during an especially tough round of chemotherapy that just crushed him, “How can you suffer this much and still be so strong?” I’ll never forget his answer, “Floyd, there may come a time in your life when the only one left who believes in you, is you. In those times, you have to be relentless.” That message is powerful. That message resonates with people. People are inspired to be relentless in their lives.”
