“Hines and Friends” benefits 3 year old Ohio Valley boy with childhood cancer


Hines Rotriga is a 7-year-old boy with a bright soul and a heart warming story. 

At a very young age he was diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer called neuroblastoma which commonly targets children ages 10 and under. 

He’s kicked cancer to the curb and currently has no indication of the disease, according to Hines’ mother Debbie.

He’s stolen the hearts of thousands of people through his “Hope for Hines” campaign and now he’s paying it forward with an event called “Hines and Friends.”

It’s an event which raises money for children in the Ohio Valley who are battling a chronic disease. 

That event was held at Quaker Steak and Lube at the Highlands today from 12-p.m. 

This year, the recipient of the funds is a 3-year-old boy named Declan McCombs who also has neuroblastoma.
