Orioles host Casey Cares critically ill child
Casey Cares child Kevin B, his family and friend got VIP treatment at Camden Yards on Tuesday, taking a tour of the stadium, batting practice and special tickets to the game in advance of his ninth birthday.
Kevin, who suffers with rare blood disease LCH, got a day out and away from his treatment at Sinai Children’s Hospital and got to meet numerous Orioles. It was also his first day of fourth grade.
The event is part of the Family Festivities Program of the Casey Cares Foundation, a charity that provides uplifting and ongoing programs with a special touch for critically ill children and their families.
“This is such an awesome afternoon for Kevin and his family to get away from their stressful routine,” stated Casey Baynes, Founder of Casey Cares. “We are so grateful to the Orioles for making memories like this happen for Casey Cares children. They are a great team on and off the field.”
