Going Viral: Mother Of Young Boy With Speech Disorder Invites Thousands To Water Balloon Fight For His Birthday

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- The family of a nine-year-old Virginia boy with a speech disorder is trying to make sure he has a 10th birthday to remember.

A Facebook page created by Camden Eubank's mother is going viral on social media inviting kids of all ages to participate in a massive water balloon fight for his 10th birthday.

On her Facebook invite page, Camden's mother says he suffers from Apraxia of speech and has problems articulating words which means he doesn't have a lot of friends.

She's trying to fulfill his birthday wish of having a huge water balloon fight for his 10th birthday on July 6th.

On her Facebook page she says, "We homeschool Camden because he would have a very hard time in a classroom setting, because he is hyperactive and as I mentioned above, impulsive. I also chose to homeschool him because I didn't want the labels he would've gotten in a public school setting- those labels follow you the rest of your life. He is an awesome kid and is very smart- but has a hard time pronouncing lots of words. He is a math whiz, loves history and when he grows up wants to be a country music singer just like Luke Bryan- he knows all of his songs already. He has been in speech therapy since he was 2 yrs old and has made great improvements over the last 8 years but still has a long ways to go."

Hundreds of people young and old already like the Facebook page, and many planning on attending.

Troutville is about 325-miles from Pittsburgh.

Camden's party is Monday, July 6th at Troutville Park in Troutville, Virginia.

The address of the park is 5419 Lee Hwy, Troutville VA 24175.
