Cadence is a 14 year old special needs boy with Autism. Cadence LOVES basketball! On August 20th he was at Lane Park in Quartz Hill playing basketball, when 4 unknown assailants jumped him!! When he tried to crawl away, they pulled him back and beat him some more! When they were finished, they stole his shoes, phone, and his favorite Warriors Jersey! His phone and she's were recovered but alas his favorite jersey was not. Cadence suffered a chest wall contusion, minor head trauma, and alot of bruising. I have known Cadence for about a year as his bowling league coach, and have seen first hand how sweet, caring, and supportive he is! Cadence is a good kid, who did not deserve to have this happen to him. My heart was broken when I heard about this terrible, and undeserving pain he has been forced to suffer! Cadence is both physically and emotionally damaged from this event, and although I can't take that pain away I thought at least we could come together as a community and help replace his favorite jersey, and maybe get him some new basketball shoes to help heal. Also, I would like to help the family with any medical costs that were incurred from Cadence's trip to the hospital that day. His family and I thank you all for your support!

*UPDATE* There's been such an overwhelming amount of support,  and so many people have asked me to keep the campaign up until after the 1st so that they can donate to the family's medical expenses after payday, the ambulance ride alone costs $1,500!!! So I am going to keep the account up until then. THANK YOU  ALL SO MUCH FOR THE SUPPORT!!!

Thank you all so so so much for all of your continued support! We just wanted to update you that we were finally able to take Cadence shopping to replaced his stolen/damaged items and let me tell you.....a smile like that will warm your heart for a lifetime!!!! Cadence was so beyond humble, and grateful, because that's how big his heart is!! He was so worried about what things costs. So we tried to explain that it was HIS money, given to him by those that love and support him!! His Autism makes it difficult for him to understand the concept of gofundme and that people from around the globe donated to him. But I can tell you from the bottom of his heart he truly thanks each and every one of you! Today was "Cadence Day", as we told him, and his response was "I feel so spoiled!!" Well buddy, after what you've been through you more than deserve to have a day of happiness!!!! So to all of you, his family and I say Thank you for making our boy smile again!!

I am so happy to say that we will be able to provide Cadence with a new jersey!! After speaking to the family I have raised the goal in hopes we may help with the medical cost of that day (from ambulance ride, to ER visit, xrays etc) that will cause a financial burden. If we can erase all the bad from that day and replace it with good that would be amazing!! Thank you so much to all who have donated!!
