Benji is a 5 year old outpatient of Summerlin & Sunrise Children’s Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was diagnosed with Choroid Plexus Carcinoma Brain & Spinal Cancer when he was almost 9 months old.
Benji underwent surgery where 99.9% of his brain tumor was removed. The surgery lasted for 7 hours. An MRI showed that the cancer had spread out to his entire spine and he needed to do “Double Dose Chemo”. Benji is a very strong child. He has endured 27 MRI’s and has survived his Brain and Spinal Cancer.
Now, he is battling his second childhood cancer, which is Thyroid Cancer. Benji is a “Professional Patient” as what his mom would say. He can name all of his medications and can walk anyone through each and every device he uses daily.
Our mission this campaign is to take Benji and his family to a Professional Wrestling match in Los Angeles, Ca, where they can all enjoy a worry free weekend, watching Benji’s favorite sport!
