John Hull is a 12-year-old boy from Radcliff. He is currently at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital fighting leukemia for the fifth time. John was first diagnosed with leukemia when he was just five years old. He is currently waiting for a bone marrow donor, and with the rest of the treatment and chemotherapy, he is expected to be at the hospital until mid-July. The treatments have been hard on John and make it difficult for him to eat. Vilmary Cotto, John’s grandmother, who also lives in Radcliff is currently caring for John. Vilmary works in the kitchen at Hardin Memorial Hospital but had to take a leave after John relapsed. Unfortunately, she was unable to qualify for Family and Medical Leave since she is not John’s legal guardian.

Lift Little Lana
Little Lana is just five years old. She has a twin sister that she is now separated from because of her untimely diagnosis of leukemia during the pandemic. The virus keeps her from having visitors. Not even her father is allowed to see her because his job exposes him to too many people. Her battle will require many trips to doctors for the next two years; however, the families primary goal is now. They are raising funds to allow Lana’s father time off from work. Time that he and Lana’s twin sister may spend at her side so she doesn’t fight this battle alone.

Reaghan is 13yo and preparing for scoliosis surgery. She and her mother will be traveling from Kentucky to New York City for a newer non-fusion corrective surgery called Anterior Scoliosis Correction.
In Fall 2017, during a routine (10 year old) well-visit, Reaghan’s pediatrician recommended that she see a specialist for possible scoliosis. We immediately called a renowned Spine Center in Louisville, KY, and made an appointment. At first, it was a wait and see what happens type of situation. At the beginning of 2018, Reaghan was diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, with a mild upper and lower thoracic curve of 17 degrees each. It was determined that Reaghan would need to be seen every 4-5 months to evaluate the progression of her curve. Reaghan also began a rigorous physical therapy program to help combat any progression. At 11 years old, late 2018, Reaghan was fitted for a custom scoliosis brace, which was incredibly uncomfortable. In August of 2019, Reaghan’s upper thoracic curve had increased to approximately 32 degrees. By February 2020, her upper thoracic curve was measuring 36 degrees. Then Covid-19 happened. Her regular scheduled appointments were cancelled. In January 2021, at 13 years old, she was finally seen again. Her upper thoracic curve had worsened to 43 degrees and her lower thoracic curve measured 27 degrees. The doctor informed us that surgical correction was needed.
