Help Caden Fight Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cancer

Hello, this is Tyryn. I am creating this GoFundMe for a fellow friend and teammate, Caden Birinyi. He is a 16 year old, going into his junior year of high school this fall.

On July 3rd, 2021, Caden was diagnosed with Stage 2B Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cancer. This caused him to stop doing what he loves, which is competitive swimming. Since he’s been diagnosed, he has been going through chemotherapy treatment in hopes to beat the cancer and continue swimming again. Caden has gone through one chemo course thus far, and he looks to be having 3-5 more courses.

Caden is a very sweet and caring young teenager who loves to give to others. He’s the type of person who is willing to do anything to accomplish his goals, no matter how long it takes him to achieve them. If there is one thing I can say about Caden, it would be he is one of the very few people I know who has so much potential in everything he does. He never fails to amaze me with how much heart he has.

Caden has a younger brother, a mom, a dad, and two dogs. Both his parents are teachers, but with Caden in the process of chemo, his parents will be taking a leave each month taking turns to be with him. It is unknown how long this process may take.

Any amount of help and support through this GoFundMe would be immensely appreciated by Caden's family, and they’re grateful for you all throughout these tough times.

Thank you so much for your time.
