Triadelphia, WV (WTRF) — The community is rallying around one little boy battling a rare type of brain cancer.
Jaymison Redman is only 10.
He was diagnosed back in September, and since, has had radiation therapy and chemotherapy. But his mom Cirstin says Jaymison in good spirits, and locals aren’t stopping to help the family.
They called this the Hines and Friends annual fundraiser, hosted at Quaker Steak and Lube. There were craft vendors, bounce houses for the kids, and live music.
20% of today’s sales goes to the family, and Jaymison’s mother and volunteers couldn’t of asked for a better turn out.
“It’s crazy. I wish Jaymison was here to see it because when we see people, they’re like ‘oh, Jaymison, we’re praying for you’, and he’s like, ‘ I don’t even know them.’ I think he thinks he’s famous, which I love, so we appreciate it.”Cirstin Redman, Jaymison Redman’s mother
It means so much to us because we know how much to community has helped us, and if I could do anything to help out, it’s all worth it.Debbie Rotriga, Hines & Friends
The original fundraiser took place a few years earlier to benefit Hines Rotriga.
At just two-years-old, Hines was diagnosed and treated for neuro-blastoma.
It’s no longer detected in his body.
And so the event has continued in his name to benefit other kids going through what he battled.
