The 2018 Clement's Cuties fundraising and FUN ball game was Saturday, August 18th at 4 p.m. against the Women’s Over-30 Allstars softball team at Cryer’s Back Road Inn ballfield in Compton. The Clement’s Cuties Raising Awareness for Childhood Cancers event began at 4 p.m. and included silent auction items, crazy antics, raffles, refreshments and the band It’s All Good performed on the Back Road Inn Pavilion Stage following the game.
2018's recipients for the Clement’s Cuties fundraising game were Colton Kirchner; a 6th grader at Leonardtown Middle School who was diagnosed shortly after his 7th birthday with B-cell ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) at his yearly check-up. Colton began treatment for 3 ½ years and was seemingly improving, then in 2017, he relapsed. Colton is on a new treatment plan which will end in 2019. The second recipient is Noah Readyhough ; a 15 year old Leonardtown High School sophomore. Noah was diagnosed last year with ALL and has spent quite a bit of time at Children’s National Medical Center. The treatments were so tough on his body that he was only able to attend 23 out of 180 days of his freshman year, though still completed all his honors classes with straight A’s. Noah should complete his treatments in May of 2020 in time to graduate. Each of these young men endures various treatment plans which include chemotherapy, radiation, spinal taps, and loads of other tests. They both enjoy playing sports and everything else that youth enjoy. We all hope that these two young men can continue through their lives with good health and great opportunities ahead in life. Ricky and Elise Ryce and Harry and Deb Pool who keep this fundraiser going and put so much work in, and all the members of both teams appreciate your donations and support!
