BALLINGER, TX- Trent's Retreat teamed up with the American Cancer Society and hosted families wanting to relax and escape the stress of their children battling cancer.

Trent's Retreat started back in 2008 after the Ueckert family lost their son Trent to an aggressive type of cancer. On Saturday August 24, kids were able to play putt-putt, have their faces painted, and a water melon eating contest to distract them from reality.
 
Many children with different ages and backgrounds gathered to this retreat. Ten year old Maddie Abor is one of them and has been battling leukemia since she was nine.

KTAB reporter Kimberly Sears has the story.
