Kayden’s Story

On September 20th 2015 the Yount family was blessed with the birth of little Kayden Wesley Yount. He is an incredible little guy, and we are all so incredibly grateful to God for him and the person he is becoming.

Recently the family began to notice that Kayden had somewhat of a lazy right eye. Thinking it was a small thing, he was taken to the Ophthalmologist on Monday March 28th 2016. Life changed suddenly, and the family is still adjusting to the reality of it all. We all learned that day that Kayden had very minimal eyesight, as well as a large tumor on the retina of his right eye. Kayden was immediately set up with an appointment at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) the following day where it was confirmed. Kayden was diagnosed with stage C retinoblastoma, a very rare form of cancer in his right eye. One in every 18,000 children are diagnosed with this particular form of cancer, and about 300 kids are diagnosed per year in the United States. Kayden is one of the youngest cases of retinoblastoma the doctors have encountered in a quite a long time. Things changed quite suddenly at this news. The Yount family was originally told by the doctor that the priorities were and are to save his life, then his eye, then his eyesight. In some ways, it does not yet seem real, but life has changed.
