100% of the proceeds will go to finding a cure for Eosinophilic Disease.
This is a disease that started affecting local Wichitan, Caleb Hoshaw, early on, but because of misdiagnosis and lack of knowledge of the disease it went undetected for years, causing severe tissue and nerves damage to the esophagus. Caleb’s was officially diagnosed with the disease in Dec. of 2016 in the esophagus and has since spread to his stomach. Caleb continues to seek treatment and surgeries every three months in Kansas City, in hopes of one day hearing those magic words “we have a cure”!
It is with great honor that I get to be apart of helping find a cure for this rare disease for not only Caleb, but for the other 1 in 10,000 it also affects.
