An upcoming car show at Lakeside Park will hold a special purpose.
Part of the West Texas Finest Car Club event on Oct. 11 will include a fund-raiser for the Kidz1stFund to fight Fanconi anemia and to possibly find a bone marrow donor for a local boy who has the rare blood disorder.
Gage Klein, a 10-year-old fifth grader at Underwood Elementary, was diagnosed with the disease about two years ago and is in need of a bone marrow transplant, according to his mother, Barbara Klein.
A medical-related van will be on hand to provide swab testing to potentially find a bone marrow match for young Gage, his mother said. A booth will also be set up to take donations for the Kidz1stFund that was established by Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher and his wife in 2011 after their son was diagnosed with Fanconi anemia.
The fund provides support to families affected by the disease, education to raise awareness about it and raises money for research at the Fanconi Anemia Comprehensive Care Program at the University of Minnesota—the largest treatment center in the country for patients with the disease, according to the Website.
