Caiden's Cancer Fighting Fund

Help Caiden Fight Cancer!

Over Labor Day weekend 2017, Caiden Flamer was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. The tumor on his ankle was fast growing and had made it impossible for him to walk without crutches. His doctors at UC Davis quickly diagnosed him and created a plan to fight this disease aggressively.

Caiden's Planned Treatment
For now, Caiden's treatment includes chemotherapy and surgery and will take place at UC Davis over the next nine months.   During this time his parents, Mark and Nicole, will commute to Davis and stay with Caiden for 4-5 days every two weeks (approximately).  When not in Davis, Mark and Nicole hope to create as normal a life as possible for Caiden. This will include creating a space at home accommodating to his illness and hiring tutors so he can keep up on his school work.

Why We Are Raising Money
We are raising funds to help with travel costs, tutors for Caiden, and any other unplanned expenses that arise during this difficult time. 

All donations will go directly to support Caiden and his family. Caiden’s auntie cuz/godmother (Michelle Zauss), who set up this fund, transfer all donations received into a bank account set up specifically to receive these funds. From there the funds will be withdrawn and distributed directly to Caiden’s parents.

We appreciate all the love and support we have received from our friends and family so far!!  We understand not everyone can afford to donate at this time.  Regardless if you can contribute money or not, we believe in the power of prayer and positive thoughts and ask all of you to keep sending those our way!  

Thank you!!!
