We came across Kamdon’s story and wanted to pass it along. I have spoken with Kamdon’s family and you can tell that he is a special and courageous kid. Please read his story below and if you can contribute, here is the #TeamKamdon Go Fund Me Page.

Kamdon Wert is a 9 year old boy from Green Island, NY. He was recently diagnosed with a rare stage 4 cancer called Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma. He has a rapid growing tumor located in his head. It starts at his nose, extends to the jaw, and goes to the back of his skull. He also has cerebral spinal fluid that has been leaking from his nose due to the tumor.

Kamdon is currently being treated at Albany Medical Center. He recently started chemotherapy and also radiation. Which hopefully will shrink the tumor so other options can be done in order to cure “Timmy the Tumor”, as Kamdon has named his tumor. He has had other tests run as well to see if he will need a drain put in for the cerebral spinal fluid.

Dustin Kelly and Mary Francese are putting together a benefit for Kamdon Wert (please see the flyer below). It will be held on May 22, 2016. Not only are they trying to help with medical expenses as well as living expenses, they are truly trying to put some hope into his heart. Hope for him to not give up on his fight. Hope that no matter how hard the fight is in the end it will be worth it. They want him to be able to look back and say even though his struggle was extremely difficult that one day made him truly happy and a day he will never forget. So they are reaching out to you for help in making this day memorable for him. Kamdon’s idol is Darrelle Revis. Kamdon is his biggest fan. I know it would make his dreams come true if he had the opportunity to meet him. I am asking you to please let’s do what we can together as a team to make this happen for him!

Kamdon has a very long road ahead of him, and a very hard struggle.
