Battle for Bentley

$12,700 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 329 people in 4 months
Created January 27, 2019
Bentley Hayden is an amazing 4-year-old boy who is battling stage IV neuroblastoma for the third time in his life. His strength and bravery over the last three years have captured people’s hearts near and far. The WNY community has shared in celebrating his clear scans and we have cried when he relapsed not once, but twice.

A cancer diagnosis can take a toll on even the deepest of pockets. The emotional weight of fighting cancer with your child is only complicated by the financial weight of this fight. The Hayden family had to leave their home and move their children across the state to be closer to Bentley’s doctor. Between moving, treatment options not covered by insurance, cost of travel over the years and lost wages – the Hayden family has incurred significant costs associated with Bentley’s fight.

This GoFundMe will raise crucial funds for Bentley and his family at a time he needs it most. A parent should never have to worry about financial means when making decisions for the wellbeing of their child.

Bentley is recovering from surgery. They were able to get the whole tumor compressing his spinal cord. The surgeon said if it wasn’t removed when it was Bentley would have been paralyzed and or worse. The next steps are treatment are now unknown. Which is extremely scary. This monster keeps trying to take my son away from me, and him not I will allow that. Please continue to pray for Bentley.

Today has been hell. Bentley woke up and couldn’t bare weight on his legs ! When he tried he would collapse. I called the team and decided to bring him in. The neurosurgeon decided to do emergency mri on his spine and brain and after 3 hours told us that the tumor was surprising his spine and they rushed him in for emergency surgery to remove the tumor. After 3 hour surgery the surgeon just came out to let me know that they removed the whole tumor and if we waited by tomorrow he would have been paralyzed.


Please pray for a quick recovery and please pray that treatment can continue and he beats this monster once and for all.

Thank you !
