Remember Gage Driskell? He's a 10-year-old from Parma who's battling brain cancer. Back in June of 2011, the community of Parma came together to remodel his home. The people who love him wanted to make sure Gage had the best home possible to get well in. It was an amazing effort for a very special boy.

Here he is with his family at a recent photo shoot with local Photographer Kortney Peterson.

Fast forward to 2013 - and Gage is still in a brutal battle for his life. This Saturday, there is a big birthday party for him in Marsing - and you are all invited! Let's make this the biggest and best birthday yet for this courageous kid, and raise some much needed money for his treatment at the same time.

The community is invited to come out and celebrate Gage's Birthday on July 20th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Please feel free to bring finger foods to share! Cake will be served. It's guaranteed to be a heartwarming day.

Gage Driskell's Birthday Party
Saturday - July 20th
2 p.m - 4 p.m.
Vision Community Church
221 West Main
Marsing, Idaho 83639

In the days after his party, Gage will be leaving for Denver Children's Hospital for a last ditch attempt to fight his recurring cancer. The family is in desperate need of help to pay for medical expenses for the stay. There will be donation jars at the party if you can help. If not, please come celebrate and support Gage anyway! He'd love to see you.

If you can't make it to the party, you can also donate to the Gage Driskell Benefit Fund at any Intermountain Community Bank. You can find branches in Weiser, Payette, Fruitland, Caldwell, Ontario, Nampa, Twin Falls, and Sandpoint. Click here for the bank's website.

We love you Gage Driskell! Happy, Happy Birthday to the bravest kid I know. Good luck in Denver!
