Trevor’s mom Julie had this to add about her son: “Trevor on his own came to us and decided that he wanted to dedicate his playing while at Disney to celebrate and honor Payton, #playingforpayton. Six year old Payton has Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. She just finished her 7th round of treatment at U of M Motts Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor. She has very important scans and tests coming up that will determine what is next for her regarding her treatment plan. She got very sick after this last round and is still currently inpatient. We are praying for her strength and healing daily. Trevor also on his own came up with the idea to raise money to send Payton and her family to Kalahari. While sending them to Kalahari changes nothing about Payton's battle, it would allow them to have a fabulous adventure making amazing memories together. Trevor wants to surprise Payton before we leave for Disney. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are asking for monetary donations to help send Payton and her family on this trip and all money collected will go to the family for Kalahari when Payton's treatment schedule allows them to go. No donation amount is too great or small. Every penny collected helps make Trevor's goal a reality for Payton. She and her family deserve this very much. What can YOU do? This is the season of giving. A donation, no matter the amount, is greatly appreciated. Cash, Check, PayPal (email@example.com) or Cash App ($tremeg), are accepted. Thank you for your generosity.”
