Benefit Concert Tonight for Teen Soccer Player Diagnosed with Bone Cancer

Grace Christian Academy

Carson Anderson is a 16-year-old soccer player from Grace Christian Academy who was recently diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma (bone cancer). The cancer was found in Carson’s left foot on September 7 and has now spread to his lungs. The doctors have prescribed an aggressive treatment plan, which will include in-patient chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation.

The community is rallying for Carson and his family with an upcoming event today, Monday, October 22. A benefit concert will be held at Grace Chapel Church, 3279 Southall Road, Franklin. Musical guests for the event include Unspoken along with other unannounced special guests. Tickets will be $20 at the door or you can purchase a ticket online here.  

A Go Fund Me page has been created for those unable to attend the concert. Currently, the amount raised is over $7,000 out of a goal of $10,000. Carson was recently selected to join the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development program and he hopes to return to playing soccer for GCA in Spring 2020 as a Junior. You can donate and follow Carson’s journey here. 

Stephens Valley Homes has also joined #TeamCarson. In lieu of ticket sales to HomeFest Tour of Homes,  taking place on October 27- November 4, Stephens Valley is asking for a $5 donation that will be donated to the Anderson family to ease the financial burden.
