It is a terrible tragedy when children are afflicted with something like this. I have two young daughters around Caleb's age and I don't know what I would do if anything like this happened to one of my girls

Caleb Cook enjoys baseball, like many 7-year olds. But there is one major difference between Caleb and the thousands of children who are looking forward to the start of the baseball season next week. Caleb suffers from rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of childhood cancer that begins in the connective tissues of the body, tissues that would normally develop into skeletal muscles.
Caleb is receiving treatment at the renowned Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Mass., but there is a significant cost involved, which is why businesses and members of the southern New Hampshire community gathered for the Caleb Cook RMS Fund Benefit to raise money for the Cook family as their son fights against the disease.
BuyaTimeshare.com was one of 10 companies sponsoring the event last month, which featured the band Blind Spot, food and drink and a silent auction. Over $20,000 was raised to go toward Caleb's medical costs and the evening demonstrated the significant community support for the Cooks according to those who attended the event, including Peter Emery, Sales Director, BuyaTimeshare.com.
"It is a terrible tragedy when children are afflicted with something like this. I have two young daughters around Caleb's age and I don't know what I would do if anything like this happened to one of my girls," said Emery."It is heartening to see the community rally around the Cook family this way and we all hope and pray that Caleb can beat this."
Caleb's treatment includes regular rounds of chemotherapy at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Since its founding in 1947, the Institute has been committed to providing cancer patients with the best treatment available while developing cures through cutting-edge research. Dana-Farber specializes exclusively in cancer treatment and research, is a Harvard Medical School affiliate and has been ranked as the best cancer hospital in New England and sixth best in the nation in U.S. News and World Report's "America's Best Hospitals" survey.
