WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- A boy in Woodbridge, Virginia, was diagnosed with brain cancer at age five. Trevor Blake has neuroblastoma, a rare and incurable cancer. Trevor has made it to age ten. Only 10% of children diagnosed with this form of cancer survive for five years or more.
But Trevor isn't just fighting for himself. His non-profit called "Trevor's Treasures" teamed up with the annual Hoops Fest fundraiser. It kicked off Wednesday night at Hylton High School in Woodbridge. Trevor's Treasures delivers toys to other child cancer patients. Trevor came up with the idea because when his dad visited him in the hospital, he would bring a bin of toys and let Trevor pick out a couple of his favorites.
Trevor has even bigger plans for this summer. In addition to the hospitals from Northern Virginia to Philadelphia where he already delivers toys, Trevor and his family are planning an RV trip to take toys to a handful of other hospitals around the country.
