9-Year-Old Battles Rare Prostate Cancer

Posted: Updated:

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.
