Making A Difference: One of 400 Stuff the Sleigh stories in 2017
Stuff the Sleigh had the honor of throwing Kye a birthday party in October of 2017. It was a birthday party he would have never been able to have had it not been for STS. It was the last time he was able to spend precious moments with all of his friends and family in one place. Unfortunately, Kye succumbed to Rhabdomyosarcoma and passed away just a few short months later. Kye is just one of many pediatric cancer and hematology patients that must face the harsh reality of childhood cancer. Below is a note from the Davis family sharing how much Kye enjoyed his birthday party. This note is one of many reasons why Stuff the Sleigh is hard at work for precious children suffering from cancer and hematology conditions.
A Note From Kaysha…
“…Thank you for the generous donations that you provided to us. Kye told us that this was his best birthday to date and to you all we are so thankful for it… We have never asked for assistance during this journey, but I’m so glad that we swallowed our pride and allowed you guys to help us… Thank you for not only providing gifts for Kye but for our other children as well. May God continue to bless your organization, and again thank you for your generosity!”
– Kaysha, mother of 6-year-old Kye*
*Kye succumbed to Rhabdomyosarcoma in January 2018
