More children than ever are being diagnosed with childhood cancer and they and their families need all the support and love that can be given to them.
It was a terrifying moment for the family of 5-year-old Kaiden Uribe from Syracuse, New York when he was diagnosed with leukemia. Their lives were turned upside down and were suddenly full of doctor’s appointments and medical bills.
But thankfully they have a great support system and they are doing better than before. They were helped by a friend who created a GoFundMe for them to have “gift cards to get meals, treatment specifics that are not covered by insurance and small indulgences that will strengthen Kaiden’s determination when the campaign gets tough.”

“Kaiden’s Corner is already crewed by his loving parents, sister, and family,” the website reads.
“As givers, you will become active members of the team, manning the corner through all the challenges to come for Kaiden and his family with your treasured financial support.
“Kaiden is bravely stepping into the ring to confront the difficulties ahead, please consider joining his team to show your devotion to this young, joyful warrior, it will be truly cherished.”
Up till now more than $7,000 has been raised to help them with medical and child care expenses. Even the local law enforcement has been supporting them by staging a parade and meet-up with the young boy. The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office arranged a convoy of police vehicles, lights and sirens blaring, that pulled up to the Uribes’ home while Kaiden looked on, on Dec 10.
Officers got out and visited the house with gifts and laid them at Kaiden’s feet, his dad gave them an overview of the family’s situation and asked for prayers. “Sometimes Superheroes Reside in the hearts of Small Children Fighting Big Battles,” the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office posted on its Facebook page.
