BALTIMORE -- Casey Cares child Kevin B., his family and friend got VIP treatment at Camden Yards on Monday, taking a tour of the stadium, watching batting practice and special tickets to the game in advance of his ninth birthday.
Kevin, who suffers with a rare blood disease, LCH, got a day out and away from his treatment at Sinai Children's Hospital and got to meet many Orioles players. It was also his first day of fourth grade.
The event was 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."
