This kid is half my age and he’s out making the world a better place while I just sit around on my fat ass writing about it. I’m not sure I’ll ever do something this kind in my LIFE, while this kid’s not even a teenager and he’s already a one man charitable army. I’ve got a lot to learn from this little dude right here.
Ben, 7, was diagnosed with leukemia in December 2015, while Landen, 9, was diagnosed Jan. 8, 2016 with glioblastoma — a grade 4 brain tumor. The tumor was removed two days later and MRIs have shown no evidence of a progression, Landen’s mother said.
After Brady learned of his friends’ battle with cancer, he asked his parents if he could sell his baseball cards to help, Kahle said.
The Boys & Girls Club of Chicopee, a youth development agency, allowed Brady to set up a table at its facility. He calls his project “Cards for a Cause.”
Since last year, Brady has sold thousands upon thousands of cards, bobbleheads, signed hockey sticks, autographed baseballs, photos, and original “Cards for a Cause” T-shirts. He even once sold a Mickey Mantle card for $150. Because of his cause, the trading card company “Upper Deck” inducted Brady into its Heroic Inspirations campaign, and printed a card with his very own face on it.
You can follow this kickass kid on Twitter HERE. And you should, because if I were a betting man (which I am), I’d bet on this kid to continue doing great things for the rest of his life.
Shout out to Brady Kahle. We could all be a little more like you.
