On July 13th, Teen Mom stars, Catelynn Lowell, Tyler Baltierra, Kailyn Lowry Marroquin, and Kailyn’s husband Javi Marroquin will appear at Kailyn’s book signing in Mount Brighton, Michigan in an attempt to raise money to help a little girl fighting cancer. The event is sponsored by The LinkFund and proceeds from the event will go to Amelie “Amie” Strzalkowski. Tyler posted on Twitter that he is excited to be apart of the event saying: So blessed to be given this opportunity to help Amie with her cancer along with @KailLowry @JaviM9.”
rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that has spread to her brain. Her father, Jason Strzalkowski said that she is undergoing chemotherapy and is doing “well.” He said:
“There are a lot of very large questions, and we don’t know when we’ll find out the answers. But we’re trying not to worry about what we can’t control.”
The event won’t be the first time Tyler and his pregnant fiancé Catelynn spend time with the little girl. The couple visited with Amie last week. Of the little girl they said:
“She’s so funny and smart. She’s got this personality that absolutely captures you, and it just made me want to help her and raise as much money as I possibly can to help this little girl. It’s one of those things that really tugs at the heartstrings and really motivates you to do something like this event. If I can do events like this and draw the public’s attention to a little girl in need…that’s what we were put in the spotlight to do.”
