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.

Happy Easter & a terrific season

Well nothing went as planned this weekend but GOD is GREAT!  Kevin had his gallbladder removed on Friday with some complications it took 3+ hours to complete.  On Saturday morning he underwent another that lasted 2 hours to retrieve a stuck stone in his bile duct.  He was unable to attend the game in person but watched it from his bed.  He refused pain meds all day so he could watch the game.  I could see the pain in his eyes but he is a grown man.  About the game he was sad for his friends and proud of them ....Shit Happens.  The entire team is a class act and are amazing men.  Immediately following the game Kevin asked for pain meds.  We are still in the hospital hoping to see more normal levels today.   

Enjoy time with your friends and family.  Take time to thank God for his sacrifice for us.  Keep the prayers coming

You Got This Kev!

Praying for God's healing hands on Kevin and on the team. Many hearts were broken on Saturday night, and I know that Kevin was hurting in body and in spirit that day whereas the rest of us were hurting only in spirit. But we are all blessed to be God's children and be members of the Big Blue Nation. Kevin, you were around for the 38 wins and it was a fantastic ride. I find it impossible to be sad over the season that we have enjoyed. I will be lifting you up daily. With God at your side, you know that you can do anything, Kevin!

Glad Kevin is on the mend. Our hearts broke along with his at the loss, but you're right, they are an amazing group of young men and gave us one heck of a season! Glory be to God in all things. You Got This Kev!!

Incredibly sorry Kevin wasn't able to attend the game - but incredibly relieved he received the medical attention he needed. I know the CATS would have loved to get the win for him and the entire BBN, but after we get over the hurt, we'll look back and recognize it for the absolutely fantastic season it was. Get well soon Kevin!!
