Medulloblastoma affects between 250 and 500 children each year in the United States.

"Last night he had head and neck pain, which we know that means tumor growth down the spine. And he laid there looking at me and said make it go away, make me better. And I can't help my son,” said Cully’s mom Randi Oothoudt.

4-year-old Cully Oothoudt has battled medulloblastoma for more than a year. He beat it once, but then in September of 2016, it came back.

"There isn't a curative treatment available. Everything we do is a phase one trial, which means it hasn't been tested before,” said Oothoudt

Then Randi heard from Lynx Express, a trucking company in Fargo, which sponsors a charity golf tournament for children affected by cancer.

"She called a couple months later and said we've chosen Cully to be the sole beneficiary which I had no idea it was going to be anything like it is. It's pretty amazing what they are doing,” said Oothoudt.

100 percent of the money raised in the tournament goes directly to the family.

The tournament is on August 18 at Maple River Golf Club in Mapleton, ND. For more information, find Lynx Links for Cancer on Facebook.
