Forget Bedlam for a moment
Over the past year or so, I’ve had the honor of sharing several times about Caleb Spady.
The Hinton boy had a passion for baseball. He had a love for the Texas Rangers and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. He also had an inoperable, incurable form of brain cancer.
Sadly, Caleb died in July, but his mother, Kim, and father, Ken, continue to post occasional updates on Caleb’s website. Today, Kim posted something that I hope you’ll consider. Here’s what she wrote:
Could we ask you to do something special for the family of another OSU fan today? Here is an e-mail I received via the OSU Coaches v. Cancer cause on Facebook. Please take a couple of moments to send a Christmas Card to the Tackett family:
Caycen Tackett is 6 years old and battling neuroblastoma, a form of cancer. He was a special guest of OSU Head Football Coach Mike Gundy at a game earlier this year – where he even received the game ball!
He is very ill and his family will be celebrating the Christmas holidays with him early. In fact, they are trying to make every day they have left with him just like Christmas! Please consider sending a Christmas Card to Caycen and his family to let them know the Cowboy Faithful are thinking about them during this difficult time. Please make sure to address the card to the family, as Caycen has younger siblings and they don’t want the other children to feel left out.
