Valdosta - Little Rett McLeod looks like a healthy, happy three-year-old. "He loves to go outside, he loves to get in the water, he likes to swim," said Kip McLeod, Rett's Father.
But since June, Rett hasn't done any of those things. That's when he was diagnosed with a type of cancer called neuroblastoma. "It's a mass of cancer cells that grows from the adrenal glands which sit on top of the kidneys," said McLeod.
Most of his time now is spent in a small room at Shand's Hospital in Gainesville. He couldn't take part in our story today because he's taking treatment. "He's lost all his hair, he's sore, he has bone pain because it is in his bone marrow," said McLeod.
Rett's medical bills are stacked high. "We've been told anywhere from $300,000 to half a million dollars worth of bills," said McLeod. But Friday, Kip's friends and co-workers are helping out with a barbecue benefit. "It's port-a-pit barbecue with all the side and they can pick it up at the Lowndes County Board of Education," said Jennifer Hattaway, Organizer.
So far, they've already raised about $6,000 and are expecting a huge crowd. "We think we'll have about 3,000 and hopefully more will come when they hear about it," said Hattaway.
It's a chance to enjoy a tasty meal and help a sick little boy along the way.
