Family, friends push to get superhero visit for Kellen

The family of a local toddler battling cancer is hoping to bring a superhero to see their superhero.

“As most of you all know by now this is my superhero nephew, Kellen,” said Jay Findley. “He has been battling cancer for several months now and has had his ups and downs with it.”

Findley said that Kellen has been a fighter.

“So, I want to see which superhero will answer the call for my biggest hero, Kellen,” he said. “So in hopes that maybe this will go viral, and we can make this happen for I am sending out a #superhero4kellen signal and challenge one of the Marvel or DC heroes to reply.”

Findley is asking everyone to share his post of Facebook and see “who will step up to the call and be a hero for Kellen.”

This isn’t the first time, Jay Findley has organized an effort for 3-year-old Kellen.

Kellen was diagnosed last fall with embroynal rhabdomysoarcoma.

Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (ERMS) is a rare form of cancer of connective tissue. It is the most common soft tissue sarcoma occurring in children.

Findley reached out to Henry Rifles president Anthonoy Imperato, who immediately donated 42 Henry Gold Boy “Fight Like A Kid” tribute edition .22 caliber rifles.
