Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — 3 year old Tiser Lusk was born with severe jaundice, which led to kernicterus, a condition that has left him with very little muscle control, making it hard for him to have the life that other toddlers take for granted.
At 3, Tiser is not able to talk or walk, and even has trouble holding up his head. That could all change soon though; his family researched his condition and found a doctor who believes he can cure kernicterus.
The only catch; the Lusks must raise $25,000 so Tiser can have a chance at the life he deserves. To reach that goal, the Lusks have been fundraising for their little boy.
One of those fundraisers takes place this Saturday at A.C. Steere Park in the form of a Family Fun Run as well as a 5K.
Registration starts at 7am on Saturday, with the race starting at 8am. The cost for the race is $30, which comes with a t-shirt, and all sorts of freebies to take home and treats at the race.
