Warner Robins group donates to young boy battling cancer

The International City Optimist Club hopes to help Keason’s family pay for some of his treatments.

WARNER ROBINS, Georgia – A Warner Robins boy battling cancer now has a new support team.

13WMAZ first introduced you to Keason Milton almost two years ago, as he began his battle with a rare cancer.

Now four years old, he serves as Children’s Miracle Network Ambassador for Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital.

His mother Tiffany Milton says balancing all of Keason’s treatments while still taking care of her other children has put a strain on their family.

She recently got a call from a man named Andy Thomas with the International City Optimist Club who offered some help.

“Just when someone says they want to donate to you and they don’t know your story, they just know you have a child who has cancer, that’s great. You don’t meet a lot of people like that,” she says.

The Club and some individual donors raised about $3,000 to help Keason in his fight.

“In times of trials and tribulations, friendships are formed and things are formed that sometimes help you get out of your own way and do something better than what you set out to do that day when you woke up,” Thomas says.

Thomas says they don’t stop there. During the Northside verses Houston County game in October, students on both sides will wear shirts for Keason and collect donations. He says some local businesses even agreed to match the amount raised.

As for Keason, his mom says he still has a few months left of his current treatments. After that, new scans will show whether the treatments are working and help doctors plan their next steps.
