Benefit held for Concord boy with Hodgkin's lymphoma

CONCORD - A fundraising benefit for a 10-year-old boy diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma was held on Saturday in Eagle Square Park.

The event, titled “Bryce Strong Family Fun Day and Benefit” will help to fund Bryce Haines' medical expenses.

The Concord fifth grader attends the Abbott Downing School and was diagnosed in April.

After being hospitalized at Concord Hospital, he was transferred to the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth or CHaD where he currently receives medical treatment.

Haines' family says he has been struggling with low absolute neutrophil counts, requiring postponed cancer treatments.

"He's in the hospital pretty much every week," said Jaryn Haines, Bryce's mother. "Either with chemo treatments, or because he's gotten a really high fever and has no blood count."

Donations to Bryce's fund can be made to:
Jaryn Haines Bryce Strong

60 Hall Street
Concord, NH 03301

A GoFundMe page has also been setup in Haines' benefit.
