The Morning Brew: Christmas cards for Kayden
Friday has arrived.
Christmas cards for Kayden
The mom of 3-year-old "K.O." Kayden Chaffin, of Noble, has a simple request: Send Christmas cards.
The Oklahoman interviewed Kayden's mom Amanda Chaffin, 25, who talked about her son's love of nature, bright colors and watching drag cars race. She also explained that Kayden has a rare disease.
Kayden Chaffin suffers from spinal muscular atrophy type I, also called Werdnig-Hoffmann disease. According to the organization Cure SMA, the disease causes physical challenges like muscle weakness and difficulty coughing and swallowing, but mental faculties remain sharp.
Kayden Owen Chaffin gained the name "K.O." because he is a fighter, said his mom.
