Child TV Chef from Gary suffering from extremely rare disease

A young TV chef from Northwest Indiana is facing an incredibly rare disease.

Ben Watkins became a fan favorite on Season Six of the Fox TV competition MasterChef Junior when he was 11. Two years later Ben became one of only six people in the entire world diagnosed with an incredibly rare soft tissue tumor.

A GoFundMe page was set up for Ben, who lost both of his parents at a very young age, to help him continue to work toward his dreams of becoming an engineer.
