Justin's 5th Anniversary

 

JustinWe have a team that participates in the annual Light the Night Walk, our team is known as Justin's Jedi. Justin was diagnosed with Burkitts Lymphoma on April 1st 2014, 5 years ago!
Immediately following diagnosis Justin had an operation to remove a tumor in his intestines and began a grueling 9 month chemo treatment. September 28th, 2014 would be the last time Justin received Chemo and checked out of Sick Kids as an inpatient. His last official day of treatment and the beginning of this little guys amazing road to recovery was on October 25th ,2014.

 

We want to celebrate 5 years of being Cancer FREE! What better way of honoring this boys road to recovery then by raising funds so other children won't have to suffer the same harsh treatments that Justin did. In the past 5 years our little guy has become an amazing young man and never let this disease define him. He has used his experience as a motivation to push for more. As his Father I can tell you it is a real joy to watch him grow up, he is really a special kid.

 

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada helps fund many different research initiatives to help find better treatments and ultimately a cure for blood cancers. I have seen and been part of some of the amazing work that they are doing, this is WHY WE WALK! Our team in the last 5 years has raised over $40,000.00 and that is a great accomplishment, but we need keep it going and not stop there. This year my goal for our team is to raise $10,000.00, I know it's aggressive but this is the path to ultimately beating this horrible disease. PLEASE HELP US REACH OUR GOAL.

 
On October 17th let's celebrate this amazing milestone! We would love to have you join the team and walk with us,here is the link to register yourself and become part of the team. 
Here is some info regarding this years Light the Night walk,
In 2019, I will be joining thousands of people walking in twilight carrying illuminated lanterns… To benefit all 138,000 people affected by blood cancers in Canada; and those that will be diagnosed every 23 minutes. I will be walking for them, with them, and to benefit them.
You can be part of the cure by kindly donating to my fundraising efforts. Thank you for supporting me and the thousands of Canadians living with a blood cancer.
