Mustangs and Memories

In a heartfelt tribute to a remarkable young spirit, Ford of West Memphis is continuing to honor Eddie DeSylvia, a ten-year-old boy who valiantly battled Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a rare and formidable brain cancer.

The dealership's bond with the DeSylvia family, forged during Eddie's fight, turned into an unforgettable act of kindness as they arranged for Eddie to fulfill his dream of riding in a Mustang. Employees at the dealership even got the Mustangs of the Mid-South to participate.

“[Ford of West Memphis] gave us memories that we’ll never forget and gave Eddie one heck of a day,” said Sonja, Eddie’s mother.

Three years after Eddie's passing in September 2020, the dealership remains committed to keeping his memory alive by participating in fundraising efforts aimed at advancing research for DIPG. Their current charity fundraiser will help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital continue to lead the way in treating and defeating childhood illnesses.
