Cannonballs for Kayne


#cannonballsforkayne We would like to introduce you to a KSP family member named Kayne! Kayne is the son of retired KSP Trooper Curtis Lee Finley, who served at the KSP Dry Ridge post for 16 years. The Thin Gray Line is truly a family and when someone within our agency is in need we do our best to assist. Kayne is an amazing 17 year old young man who was a competitive swimmer until he was recently diagnosed with a cancerous tumor located at the base of his brain stem. Kayne was born in Union, KY and raised in Northern KY until his family moved to Florida. We hope you will take a moment to learn about Kayne and how you may be able to assist his family with medical bills. Because Kayne loves to swim, they created the fundraiser "Cannonballs for Kayne."

You can click this link to learn more about this effort.

The family appreciates your thoughts and prayers. Cards of encouragement or donations can be mailed to the 'Cannonballs for Kayne Foundation' at PO BOX 1738, Ormond Beach, FL 32175.
