9-Year-Old Battles Rare Prostate Cancer

Posted: Updated:
Shawnee, OK -

An Shawnee Oklahoma family is dealing with mounting medical bills after doctors diagnosed their 9-year old son with a rare form of prostate cancer.

Trevor Storie is a huge Oklahoma state fan. Now a group of Oklahama State Football team are trying mightily to save his life.

Trevor's mom Zona Storie says her son started feeling sick last month when doctors in Shawnee took a look at him.

They knew it was serious and sent him to Children's Hospital at O U Med where he was diagnosed with a rare form of prostate cancer.

Zona and her husband Shane both have health insurance, but when a single shot for a cancer treatment costs $3,000 insurance doesn't always cover the entire bill.

"He's 9 years old. He's my baby. I mean what do you do," Zona said. "Whatever it takes. We would sell everything in our name. I mean what wouldn't you do for your kid?"

Zona says Oklahoma Head Coach Bob Stoops also sent Trevor an Oklahoma State Football cap and other gear.

A Trevor Storie Medical Fund is now in place at Vision Bank locations in the Shawnee area.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
