Jackson Blackford is one of five children in the entire world to be selected for a research study using umbilical cord stem cells.
Jackson was born with "Optic Nerve Hypoplasia," which left him blind.
The treatment and trip cost $60,000, none of which is covered by insurance.
The Greenwood High School Concert Band and Choir will perform at First Baptist Church.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under.
All proceeds go toward medical expenses.
Jackson's mother, Rachael Stayer, is an alumnus of Greenwood High.
