This is one of our fighters, Chase.
He is one of the many children battling cancer that we are sponsoring this year with our holiday cheer program. He is 12 years old and was diagnosed back in April of 2015 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Unfortunately, many of our fighter’s immune systems are weakened, making them more susceptible to catching other illnesses.
Chase recently caught whooping cough causing him to be ill over the Thanksgiving holiday. Luckily, he is recovering quickly and his cough has subsided. We are hoping he will be better by Christmas!
The holidays are such a special time for our fighting families because each moment is a gift with a child battling cancer.
Chase has two siblings, Haylee who is 9, and Brayden who is 8. They are all three receiving gifts from their wish lists this year through our Holiday Cheer Program. When we told Chase’s mother that we had purchased the big ticket items on all three of her children’s wish lists, she burst into tears exclaiming how excited they would be.
Donating to the Holiday Cheer program is more than just giving gifts during the holiday season, it’s relieving families of the financial stress that comes with it. We are giving parents the opportunity to see their children’s face’s light up with pure joy and spend some deserved quality time together.
