What was supposed to be a "normal" Friday for a local family, turned into so much more than they bargained for.

Evan Moats is 10 years old. He has Leukemia... and he's battling it. Like most other weeks, Evan was getting chemotherapy in Indianapolis. His mom, Angela Adams, returned to their Terre Haute home to find a window busted in and the door unlatched.

Much more was stolen from the family than just material items. They've lost their sense of security and peace of mind. It's significantly worse on Evan who isn't able to sleep in his room.

You can follow Evan on his treatment journey on Facebook.
