Do you remember Gage Driskell? He is a young Parma boy battling brain cancer right now.

We've done many stories on him in the past, and on his brave battle. His cancer is aggressive, and now after exhausting all of his treatment possibilities here in Idaho, he's enrolled in an experimental treatment program at Stanford in California. His family is hoping for a miracle.

He leaves next week, but he needs help getting there. 

There is a benefit barbeque at Paul's Market in Kuna this Saturday, and all proceeds will go to getting Gage to California, and helping him with expenses while he's there. It's called a "BENEFIT FOR GAGE". Come on out and get a hot dog and soda this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Paul's Market


10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Paul's Market - 700 E Avalon St  Kuna, ID 83634

Gage will be there at Paul's with his loving Dad, Jake, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. if you'd like to meet this little HERO in person, and wish him the very best in fighting cancer in California. He needs all the support and positive vibes we can send him!

If you can't get there, you can donate at Intermountain Community Bank in Caldwell. The bank tells us the account is under Jacob Driskell's name, for the benefit of Gage Driskell. Click HERE for information about the bank.

We love you Gage Driskell!
