Diagnosed at 14, Kaden is a survivor of osteosarcoma. Although this type of bone cancer is rare, it is the most common cancer developed during childhood. Kaden endured surgery to removehis cancer along with several teeth and part of his gums. He was fitted with an obturator, which made it possible for him to eat, speak and live fully following his surgery. As Kaden matures he outgrows his device and replacements are not covered by insurance. HNC Living Foundation provided funds to purchase three new obturators for Kaden.
