TAHOE, Calif. — Join a fundraiser for 4-year-old Kyle Adams, a Tahoma resident, who is in and out of the hospital and will be for quite some time.

Kyle was diagnosed with lymphoma in March 2014. He became very ill and his parents took him to the emergency room.

It was determined Kyle needed to be put on Careflight to UC Davis Hospital, where he spent more than three weeks in ICU.

The family does have insurance, however the co-pays alone are astronomical and he has a very long journey ahead of him.

Kyle is being a little trooper and fighting this cancer with all his might. Currently, Kyle receives five chemo treatments a week. Doctors say they expect him to be at the hospital receiving treatments for the next two years.

Kyle also has a baby sister and big brother. His mom does not leave his side while dad works.

The Lake Tahoe family has the added expense of travel, room and board — all while trying to care for their other children, age 2 and 7.

Donations will go to the family to help pay for medical expenses and extra expenses associated with this difficult time.
