Horry County, South Carolina (WBTW) – A family at Myrtle Beach is on a mission to give “lifts” to children who are fighting cancer in a special way.
The Hoovers said it was all about helping children fight cancer. They said giving wagons to families with childhood cancer as a way to provide children with a safe and comfortable space.
“Having a good time with my son, meeting other children, and hopefully giving hope to people was a big impact,” said Kevin Huber.
6-year-old Baxley Hoover is a cancer survivor. He was diagnosed with stage 4 rhabdomyosarcoma two years ago and is now cancer-free. Baxley and his parents Kevin and Susanne travel across the country on an RV trailer to all 50 states.
“We’re going to fly to Alaska and Hawaii, but we’re going to drive to every state and give one child in every state a wagon,” Kevin Huber said.
The family said they wanted to help other children in the same fight that Baxley once had.
The wagon has a very special meaning to Bucksley. Baxley chose to move around the hospital with a wagon instead of a wheelchair during treatment. His parents said the wagon was his comfort zone.
“It was a safe place for him. He stayed there for all the infusions of chemotherapy, so we want to give other children a safe space,” Sae Yamamoto said. Hoover said.
“I think this is a good idea because he was given the space taken away from him to ride the wagon with everything. When we started talking to other parents, They commented on how great it was, and it’s just a tiny beach wagon that’s common on the market. We’ve found another use, “says Kevin Hoover.
The family departs on Sunday, August 1, and first stops at Lake Jordan, North Carolina.
