Help Send Kaiden To K State's Bowl
This is about a boy named
Kaiden is battling childhood cancer.
Kaiden is a huge K State Wildcat fan,
Kaiden is good friends with
K State Football Defensive End
#44 Ryan Mueller.
Watch Kaiden's Play here now;
We befriended Chris and Jenny Schroeder through Facebook, after this years spring game, to let them know, there are people in our #Family who want to encourage and strengthen this young man as he battles his disease. We have followed Kaiden through Philadelphia as he went over the summer for treatments. We shared the posts from Jenny as she blogged about Ryan Mueller visiting them in Philly. We all watched as he was celebrated at halftime during the Stephen F. Austin game at halftime. We followed him back to Philadelphia to receive more treatments this last month. We always wish Kaiden Strength and our prayers for health and safety. Wildcat Salute a Facebook group, setup a gofundme account to send Kaiden and one parent to our bowl game through the ticket office. That has been surpassed and are sending the whole Schroeder family. That way Kaiden can watch #44 Ryan Mueller play in a K State uniform one last time. We would like this personal request from our group to be a testament of what Family does for Family. Thank you for donating and making this happen.

First we would like to say Thank you to Justin and Andre Barton for all their hard work to set up the Gofundme account for Kaiden and our Family!
Kaiden was so excited when we told him!!!
We would also like to thank everybody for their support, thoughts and prayers! Without you none of this would happen! We can't wait to find out after a wildcat victory on Saturday where the Cats will be going!
We feel so humbled to have the wildcat family behind us as we make the trip again to Philly.
Thank you again for all the support.
Chris, Jenny, Kaiden, Ashlyn, and Bryson Schroeder

Thank you for giving us the chance to share such a wonderful families experiences that no family should have to face, but it is reality. Knowing you all can relax knowing everything will be taken care of for a little while, gives all of us the biggest comfort you can imagine. Bringing this issue to the forefront and having such a great role model in Kaiden and a "Big Brother" Ryan Mueller has played in your lives is definitely been the biggest blessing of all. Here is to a brighter future for Kaiden. We will pray for strength and healing. And most of all the knowledge of how you wish to pay it forward so others may enjoy a moment such as this makes the whole K State Family proud to choose Kaiden as our ambassador for Childhood Cancer. Bless the Schroeder Family and keep them safe as they embark on these journeys ahead.
Happy to help the Schroeder family and thankful for Ryan Mueller, Coach Snyder and Wildcat Nation. Now let's get Kaiden healthy and the Wildcats a victory! EMAW!
So proud of our Family!!! Donating right now!!
I am so very proud of this effort on behalf of Kaiden from his Wildcat Family. I have been watching the progress, and know it will continue to climb. Purple Pride indeed! Love my Family
I'm dedicating my 13.2 mile Half-Marathon today to Kaiden! As I was running up and down hills in Lawrence with 40 mile per hour wind gusts, I sometimes wanted to quit. Then I thought, would Kaiden quit? No! So I pushed on and finished a personal best 2:14:56!!! Thank you Kaiden for the inspiration! #KSTATEFAMILY
This is awesome everyone - what a great thing to do for this family!!
