Paul George and the Indiana Pacers had a special visitor come through Bankers Life Fieldhouse Wednesday. It’s the type of visit that is memorable for the guest, but potentially even more impactful for the host.
Meet Kaden Curtis, today’s special visitor.
He’s a strong 14-year-old going through things kids — or anyone, for that matter — should never go through. Last year, on February 22nd to be exact, Curtis was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer: Germinoma.
Curtis said there are between 10 and 20 people diagnosed with it in the United States each year. While in the hospital, Curtis, a fighter, felt terrible. But terrible was still better than many others on his floor.
He went room to room at the hospital cheering on other patients, and with his IV pole trailing behind. More than a year later now, Curtis had some outstanding news to share.
“I just overcame brain cancer,” he said proudly, with his eyes watering as he discussed his battle, as well as his love for Paul George.
