Jaxson Scott, four year old son of Grace (Yount) Fox and Jay Scott, was diagnosed with an abdominal aortic aneurysm, which required two surgeries, when he was one year old. Six months later he was also diagnosed with generalized infantile myofibromatosis which required chemotherapy. The chemo was successful in removing the tumors along his spine. His vascular system has been compromised and he has endured three more surgeries. His disease has never been seen before and the doctors have told his parents there is nothing else they can do for him but to keep him comfortable. A Bucket List has been developed for this little fighter. Donations can be made online at Go-Fund-Me Jaxson Scott Bucket List & Medical or to the Jaxson Scott Fund at Union State Bank, in Uniontown or Fort Scott. There will also be a "Vegas Casino Night" Fundraiser, July 18, 7:00 pm to Midnight at the Elks Lodge, 111 W 19th St, Fort Scott, KS. Advanced Tickets $20, at the door $25. For advance tickets contact Mary Pillion, 620-756-4842 (leave message) or Betsie Binford, 620-215-3221.
