Weston Keeton Fundraiser
This year’s event is very special to us, because all proceeds from the Egg Hunt and Carnival will be donated to a 6 year old boy named Weston Keeton. Weston is a brave little boy from Tennessee who has been in the care of the doctors at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia since June 1, 2011 waiting for his biggest wish, a new heart and double lung transplant.
When he was born he was diagnosed at 9 days old with a rare heart defect: congenital aortic stenosis and mitral stenosis. After undergoing three open heart surgeries before the age of 3, he also developed pulmonary hypertenstion. The doctors at CHOP recommend a life-saving heart and lung transplant.
During this time his family has had to live apart. His mom stays in Philadelphia with Weston, his baby sister and his oldest brother. His dad is back in Tennessee working so the family can keep their health benefits and with the help of other family they take care of the other 4 kids.
With the cost of a transplant often exceeding $500,000 many transplant families are unable to shoulder the financial burden of such a procedure even with their health benefits. Once Weston receives his transplants he still needs to live in the hospital for another 4-6 months to make sure there are no complications.
The Childrenís Organ Transplant Association (COTA) is a national charity dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-needy patients. Through the Childrenís Organ Transplant Association, BucksMont Indoor Sports Center has decided to hold this event in Westonís honor to help his family afford the care he needs. We truly hope you will help us to spread the word and come out and join us at this wonderful event. It will be fun for the whole family to know you are all working together to help Weston!
