Hardship Gift Nomination Selected! Check it out.
2021 Hardship Gift Nomination:
KAMDEN JONES (age 5)
We have selected the nomination for this year's Hardship Gift. It wasn't a difficult selection... We received nearly 20 different nominations for Kamden! Below is one of the submissions:
"Kamden is an amazing 5 year old boy going through a fight no child should ever have to go through. He was diagnosed in June with a medulloblastoma, or a brain tumor that had spread to his spine. He had brain surgery, and is now going through chemo and just had surgery to put in a feeding tube into his stomach. This sweet boy is supposed to be starting kindergarten this year, and instead he has spent most of his summer in the hospital. His mom had a baby 4 weeks before Kamden's diagnosis. This family's lives have been turned upside down in a way no one should ever be. Healthcare costs are astronomical, even with insurance. Then when you add in the expenses no one thinks about such as gas to and from the hospital, cost of food at the hospital, childcare for an infant so Erica can be with Kamden, and now Erica is not going back to work so she can devote her time to Kamden. This family is very deserving of this."
Okay... so how do I support Kamden and his family?
