Noon Notebook 3/3: Mothers turn difficult journey into worthy cause

MULESHOE, TX (KCBD) -

Killin' it for Kreid, Inc. is a non-profit established by Heather Campbell and Morgan Marricle.

They are the mothers of Kade Campbell and Reid Marricle.

Both boys battled a brain cancer called Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor. 

The boys underwent surgery and numerous months of chemotherapy and radiation. 

The mothers tell us upon recurrence, there was no other treatment available for them. 

Kade and Reid passed away two months apart from one another. 

The mothers tell us they met while at the hospital in Dallas and decided to create a non-profit.

In memory of the boys' names, they came up with Killin' it for Kreid, Inc.

They work to assist children who are battling malignant brain tumors and their families. 

The non-profit is hosting their first Smokin' it for Kreid Cook-off in Muleshoe on April 21st and 22nd.

The event will take place at the Muleshoe City Park. 

Participants can compete in corporate or amateur divisions.

Visitors can purchase wristbands to taste the entries.
