Attention Turtle fans: Please help Caleb Gibson!

Turtles Fans Unite!

Meet Caleb Gibson: He’s only 4-years-old!

Caleb was diagnosed with Histolytic Sarcoma. Caleb is currently undergoing daily treatments at the University of Virginia hospital to send his cancer into remission. Caleb’s dad, Lee, a heroic Charlottesville, VA police officer and Caleb’s mother, Blair, a 5th grade teacher, have been by Caleb’s side everyday to help give him a “home like” atmosphere. Caleb also has a brother, Colin, who is only 6-years-old. Colin has been Caleb’s biggest supporter throughout all of this.

IMG_4851We were contacted by Terry, she is Caleb’s aunt. Terry wanted us to forward Caleb’s story to the turtles, and we were more than happy to do so. Terry informed us about what a big turtle fan Caleb and Colin were. Caleb’s favorite turtle is Leonardo, and Colin’s favorite turtle is Michelangelo (don’t worry, they still love you, Raph and Donnie). Caleb also loves pizza – just like the turtles!

Caleb’s extended family started a YouCaring page to help raise funds to offset the costs of Caleb’s treatment on the Gibson Family. Please visit Caleb’s page here, and show Caleb, Colin, Lee, Blair and the entire Gibson family that the turtle fandom is here to help!

Check out this video of Caleb and Colin opening a surprise package sent from the turtles and TMNT Box.
