Family tries to raise money for transporting son suffering from rare disease

Posted: Updated:

A family from Ohio is trying to raise money so they can have reliable transportation to a care center in Huntington. 

Kaden Badle-Satterfield is four-years-old and suffers from a rare blood vessel malformation known as kaposiform lymphangiomotosis.  Because the disease is so unusual, there is no standard for treatment. 

Kaden and his family have weekly visits in Huntington and Cincinnati to see specialists.  They currently live in Racine, OH and drive about two hours to reach Cabell-Huntington Hospital.

An account has been setup at Racine Home National Bank for donations.
