RICHMOND, Ky. (WTVQ) – A young cancer survivor in Richmond, and his family, will be in the VIP section during President Donald Trump’s rally on Saturday.
Ryan Cremeens, a survivor of pediatric cancer, is anxious for the opportunity to meet the president.
His father, Eric Cremeens says being invited into the VIP section for an event like Trump’s rally is an honor.
“Having Ryan and our family there, we feel like we’re up there for all the families that have gone through what we’ve gone through,” said Cremeens.
The family, including Ryan, is ready to be an advocate for others fighting pediatric cancer.
“I’m going to tell [President Trump] that pediatric cancer isn’t as rare as you think it is,” said Ryan.
Cremeens says he is excited for his kids to meet the man holding the highest office in the country, and he hopes that others, despite what political views they hold, will be happy his family is getting the experience.
“We’re worried about protesters or people saying negative things to us or our children because we are there and because we’re participating and I don’t want it to be something like that,” said Cremeens.
