Kevin’s Story

Kevin was born on January 18, 1994. He is a 3 sport athlete (baseball, basketball, and cross country) sophomore at Franklin Central High School in Indianapolis, Indiana. He loves watching and playing most all sports, but his three favorite teams are the Kentucky Wildcats, New England Patriots, and New York Yankees. Some things he enjoys doing in his free time would be fishing, spending time with family, and playing XBOX 360(COD). He was diagnosed on February 10th with a brain tumor, specifically pontine glioma. That night he began the first round of 5 weeks of radiation. He should begin soon to steadily improve with every radiation treatment. The main thing he needs right now is everyone to just continue praying. You got this Kev!  Kevin still has a lot of You Got This Kev tshirts, if you are interested please let us know.

Kevin is doing well.  4 years ago we just came home from the hospital. What a ride we have been on.  Kevin went back to UK on Sunday he was on Spring Break the week before.  Man I love to have him here but I love to see him chasing after his dreams. His grades are doing well but prayers are needed to help him finish the semester strong!!! 
4 years ago we were learning how to deal with the trach, gtube, CPR, palliative care etc....not knowing what was going to coming around the corner.  As I look back at the journey that we started 4 years ago too many children's cancer journey is just beginning...WE need to find the cure soon.  At Franklin Central High School, the high school Kevin, Duke and Marissa attended,one student lost her battle and another was recently diagnosed with cancer this year. It hurts my heart so bad to know some of the journey these families are going through  I will never say I know what they are going through because each journey has it is own up and downs, highs and lows, and trials and victories. One thing that helped us a lot was the support we received for the community.   Please help Kyle's family by purchasing a tshirt.  Click on the link  http://teespring.com/wrenchstrong?fb_action_ids=10202224160697727&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=other_multiline&action_object_map=%5B751514778201389%5D&action_type_map=%5B%22og.likes%22%5D&action_ref_map=%5B%5D
