Meet Cayde

Share Cayde’s Story:

Cayde’s condition has no cure, medical care is focused on managing Cayde’s long list of symptoms.

Cayde has three younger siblings, Casey 2 years old, Corbin 5 years old and Cohen 9.  He loves being outdoors, and especially loves playing soccer and golf.

Cayde’s health challenges have dramatically impacted his parents and young siblings. Gifting the Payne family a holiday to the Gold Coast gave them the opportunity to spend quality time together, away from medical appointments and the everyday pressures of life and simply have fun.

Mates on a Mission would like to continue supporting Cayde, his young siblings and parents, helping them create memories they will cherish forever.
