SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A fundraising event featuring music, food, raffles and a silent auction will be held Sunday in Shelbyville for a local middle school student battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
Kory Stewart, 13, was diagnosed with the treatable cancer in November and underwent numerous treatments including chemotherapy, bone marrow biopsies, a spinal tap and surgery to insert a port under his skin.
His mother, Lea Stewart, expressed gratitude for how quickly Kory’s medical team began fighting the cancer.
Five Shelbyville Middle School administrators camped out on the roof in December.
Proceeds from this weekend’s fundraiser will help cover Kory’s medical expenses.
